TMW reported yesterday that Everton have re-ignited their interest in the 21-year-old are are contemplating a move.

Arsenal are long term admirers of the midfielder, and it is the Gunners who appear to be Jankto's preference.

Riso said: "He likes Arsenal, he is a lover of English football, and he also likes Juve, Inter and other teams.

"He has to stay calm and think only of Udinese, then we will see, I see him more in Premier than in other championships."

Riso's words are encouraging for both clubs but particularly Arsenal, who sent scouts to watch him in action earlier this season, The Sun report.

Jankto signed a new contract with Udinese earlier this year until 2021, but his agent's comments do not exactly scream 'commitment', and indicate that if a big club come calling, Jankto could be off.

Now it is up to Arsenal or Everton to put him to the test.
