Chelsea are set to rival Arsenal for Jakub’s Jankto, according to reports.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with the young midfielder and club scouts have been watching him for well over a year.
Jankto is seen by many as one of Serie A’s brightest talents and has also been linked with top Italian clubs like Milan and Juventus.
However, there is a new suitor for the midfielder. According to Corriere dello Sport via the Daily Cannon, Chelsea have joined the race to sign Jankto.
With Jack Wilshere’s future at Arsenal largely uncertain, a move for Jankto could be appealing to the club but the amount of clubs interested in his services means we may have to work harder to sign him.
Jankto has made a bright start to the current campaign, scoring two goals and assisting two more.
Reports claim he has a £6m release clause in his contract which shouldn’t be a problem for Arsenal but it may come down to who is ready to offer the highest wages.
Arsenal have an history of being prudent in the transfer market so it won’t be out of place if we say the club will not be forced into paying what it thinks the player deserves.
Chelsea would be willing to pay him whatever he wants but if he places his career first, the Emirates could be the best destination for him.
