Arsenal have set their sights on Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno, according to a report from Italy.
The 24-year-old graduated from the Serie A side’s academy and made his way into their first team in 2018. He has been a regular since the start of the last season and his form hasn’t gone unnoticed.
That’s at least what La Repubblica, relayed by FcInterNews, are reporting and name Arsenal as one of the interested parties in Buongiorno.
Buongiorno has a deal until 2028 and it’s said the Turin club’s official is demanding around €35m to let go of him after this season.
According to La Repubblica, Torino are hoping for Arsenal to pay this fee and also trigger an ‘auction’ between Mikel Arteta’s side, Inter Milan and AC Milan for the player next summer.
The Italy international has scored two goals from 12 appearances this season.
