Arsenal Offer Player-Plus-Cash Deal For Ligue 1 Youngster

Premier League giants Arsenal have offered a player-plus-cash deal for in-form Rennes forward Ismaila Sarr according to various reports coming out of France.

90min.com claim that the Gunners have offered €16m plus third choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez for the 20-year-old.

The Rennes star has been in sensational form for the French club since the start of the season.

He has found the back of the net eight times in addition to six assists in his 23 outings for Rennes this season.

Eight goal contributions have come in the last seven games for Rennes.

Arsenal are interested in signing Ismaila Sarr and they have included Argentine shot stopper Emiliano Martinez as a sweetener for the deal.

The Gunners have identified him as the replacement for the injured Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal have seen their forward options deplete in recent weeks following the injury to England international player Welbeck.

The North London giants have two senior strikers (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette) in the first team without Welbeck.

Young striker Eddie Nketiah is the back-up option for the aforementioned duo.

Danny Welbeck sustained a season-ending injury last month during the Europa League home clash with Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon.

He broke his ankle in the first half of that game.
