Arsenal to sign prolific winger in January

Emery will have to dig deeper to get better results from his squad after a belabouring display against Everton, despite their second half 2-0 win over the Toffees last weekend.

Senegal international Ismaila Sarr could swing the second half of the Premier League season in the Spaniard’s favour, as reports milling out of the news factory say the Gunners are clamping down on the Rennes player.

After a entering into a fine lane of form this new season for the top-tier outfit, racking three goals in 7 appearances, the winger who can also function as a forward, has Arsenal on the alert.

The north London outfit is reportedly monitoring the Senegalese winger’s progress at Rennes.

The 20-year-old, who scored the opener for Rennes in the Europa League from a Benjamin Andre assist, already has a host of top European clubs crowding for his signature in January.

Interests from Italian outfit Juventus were registered in July, and while Juventus have been silent on a possible transfer, Inter Milan have acknowledged they are interested in the budding talent.

Ismaila is contracted until 2021 at the French outfit since joining from Metz in the summer of 2017.

He is valued in the region of 12.6 million pounds, but that price tag could reach a massive 20 million pounds by January, according to the Tuesday’s Daily Mail.

Sarr, so far, has appeared eight times for Senegal this year.
