Arsenal are on the verge of signing Jakub Jankto from Serie A side Udinese ahead of interest from AC Milan and Juventus.
The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting talents in world football and according to a recent report from the Sun the star is very close to completing a move to the Emirates.
The report states that Jankto has a release clause in his contract for just £6m which looks to be a bargain that Arsene Wenger and Arsenal cannot ignore. However, despite this modest release clause it could cost just a little bit more to prize the wonderkid away from Italy. A report from CalcioMercato last week suggested that his current club Udinese value the star at €30m.
A separate report from Italian outlet CalcioMercato this week stated that the Gunners are likely to beat AC Milan and Juventus to the midfielder with Juve unwilling to invest in the star and Milan also reluctant to complete a deal.
Jankto is from the Czech Republic and has already been capped for the first-team national side having risen through the ranks of the youth teams at international level and having already registered a goal for the Czech first-team.
