According to reports, Gianluca Scamacca, who is wanted by Arsenal, has turned down the approaches made by the Premier League giants. The attacker currently playing for Sassuolo has reportedly caught the attention of the Gunners. They are said to be interested in acquiring a striker during the next summer transfer window.
Alfredo Pedulla claims that Arsenal presented Sassuolo with an offer of €40 million with incentives to acquire the 23-year-old player. The Gunners will want to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a striker of the highest caliber during this summer transfer window. Aubameyang left the Gunners by mutual agreement during the January transfer window,
The club is also getting ready for the possibility that Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will leave the team soon. This summer, both members of the club will see their respective contracts come to an end.
Gianluca Scamacca had a phenomenal year for Sassuolo in Serie A the year before. He scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for the team. Arsenal is showing interest in acquiring the 23-year-old player. They have made an offer to get the Italy international. Scamacca, on the other hand, has turned down the opportunity to play for the north London club. He wants to remain in Serie A.
According to many reports, Scamacca would be more interested in moving to Inter Milan. The team managed by Simone Inzaghi finished second in Serie A the previous year, behind AC Milan by only two points in the standings. The club may provide Scamacca with the opportunity to continue playing in Italy, participate in the Champions League for the next season, and maybe win a trophy in the not-too-distant future.
What are the options for Arsenal?
On the other hand, Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League this year. They will compete in the Europa League as a result during the 2021-22 campaign.
Nerazzurri is working on terms to recruit Paulo Dybala. He is a free agent following the expiry of his contract with Juventus. They are also showing interest in Bremer, a defender now playing for Torino.
The Italian giants are looking into the potential of re-signing Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku this summer. Scamacca may need to be patient to achieve a transfer to Inter Milan given that Inzaghi’s team now has their hands full with other commitments. In addition to an offer from Sassuolo, the star player is also on the radar of AC Milan and Napoli.
