The French international, 21, is widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world at the moment, and has also been strongly linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
However, Arsenal could now make a hugely ambitious move for the Serie A star, with Arsene Wenger ready to smash the Gunners’ previous transfer record in the process.
Pogba would likely cost around £80m, nearly double what the north London side paid to sign Mesut Ozil in 2013.
