Arsenal look to Juventus youngster Kingsley Coman - report

The Gunners are thought to be one of a host of clubs ready to pounce on the young French forward.

Arsenal are one of a host of clubs interested in signing Juventus youngster Kingsley Coman this summer, according to Calciomercato.

The Gunners were linked with a move for the promising French starlet last summer when he was at Paris Saint-Germain, as per The Daily Mail, but the attacker opted for a move to Turin instead.

With the Italian champions bolstering their attacking options with the acquisitions of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala this summer, it remains to be seen what role Coman has to play in Max Allegri’s squad.

The 19-year-old only started five Serie A games last season, making nine more appearances as a substitute, but is yet to score his first goal for the Bianconeri.

Coman is also wanted by the likes of Bayern Munich, Monaco, Bologna, Genoa, Palermo, Sassuolo and Sampdoria according to Calciomercato, with potential for a loan move elsewhere if he is not deemed as a critical player for Juventus at the current time.

Arsenal have the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck as options in attack, but may well feel that Coman has the potential to offer another alternative to lead the line or play as a support striker.
