Arsenal are reportedly planning to sign Juventus striker Moise Kean, and have initiated contact with his agent Mino Raiola.

However, reports claim that Kean is not keen on a move to North London but would rather complete a move to Everton, who has been trying to bring him to their Merseyside all summer.

The youngster became a hot prospect after shooting to limelight with his impressive performance last season scoring six goals in thirteen appearances for the Serie A giants.

Now, the Old Lady is ready to let the 19-year-old go and Everton have reportedly agreed a £36 million deal with Juve on Monday and is set to sign a contract before the week runs out.

The Daily Mail claim Unai Emery has initiated contact with Raiola over the phone in a bid to convince him to change direction.

But the player is reportedly not persuaded on a move to the North London club ad there is no assurance of first team football with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal.

The Gunners have been quite busy this summer having completed deals for Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba.

Dani Ceballos also joined Arsenal on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid and Nicolas Pepe is expected to complete his move to the North London club today.
