Arsenal are hoping to sign Sassuolo midfielder Hamed Traore for a fee of £20 million as well as his younger brother Amad who is also on the radar of the Gunners according to 90Min.
With the Premier League giants set to miss out on the Champions League yet again, sitting ninth in England’s top flight as it stands, funds will once again be tight for Mikel Arteta’s side.
So the North London club, it seems, will have to prioritise exciting young talents as opposed to established, proven quality.
And the two Toure brothers, at 20 and 17 respectively, certainly represent the former rather than the latter.
Hamed is the more experienced of the two, scoring three times in 20 Serie A games for Sassuolo this season.
As per 90Min, the Gunners believe a deal could be done for around £20 million, though Italian champions Juventus will complicate matters given that they have first refusal on the attacking midfielder.
Teenager Amad is still looking to make his breakthrough for Champions League quarter-finalists Atalanta, meanwhile, and the Bergamo-based outfit are desperate to hang onto one of their most exciting prospects.
There is a belief that Amad, in particular, might have already moved out of Arsenal’s price range.
