Udinese have placed a price tag on Arsenal target Jakub Jankto, according to reports.
Wenger is reportedly keen on signing a midfielder this January as Wenger look for options to bolster his midfield for the second half of the season.
And reports in Italy reckon that Jankto is high on Arsenal’s radar.
Arsenal are expected to renew it’s interest in the Udinese midfielder, having monitored him closely in the past one year.
Reports had suggested that the 21 year old has a £6m release clause in his contract but it has now emerged that he would cost a lot more than that figure.
According to Gazetta dello Sport via the Daily Cannon, Arsenal will need to cough out up to £22m to sign the midfielder.
Jankto seem to have a good amount of experience playing at the top level but still I don’t think he’s good enough to make the step up to a club like Arsenal.
He featured 29 times in the league for Udinese last season and scored 5 goals, he has made 14 this season and has three goals to his name, which is not a bad return for a midfielder.
I expect Arsenal to move for a more experienced target if we are looking for someone to strengthen our midfield. A player like Jankto will be one for the future.
