Arsenal news and transfers LIVE: Aaron Hickey decision, Tielemans alternative, Gabriel Jesus bid

Scamacca verdict

Sassualo’s chairman, Guido Angelozzi, has compared the frontman to Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic, the foremost striker in the Serie A. Arsenal fans will remember their failed bid to sign the Serbian in January, but Angelozzi has hinted that Scamacca could be just as good an option.

“I took him to Sassuolo when he was just a kid. For me he is a top striker, he is no less than Vlahovic,” the 67-year-old said, as quoted by TuttoMercatoWeb. “He scored 16 goals in a short time; there are no such strikers in Europe.

“He already did it once (left Italy), going to Holland when he was very young, then we were good at Sassuolo in bringing him back to Italy. Who will be better will take him away again.

“Surely it will cost a lot. He will be the future centre forward of the national team.”
