Young Juventus striker Moise Kean is reportedly attracting the interest of Premier League giants Arsenal who are keen to bolster their squad between now and the end of the transfer window next month.

The Premier League transfer window ends on August 8, just a day before the start of the new league season.

Arsenal’s interest in Moise Kean was confirmed by the Birmingham Mail.

Apart from the Gunners, fellow Premier League side, Everton are also interested in the player.

As a matter of fact, the Toffees have had a bid turned down for the player this summer with Juventus reluctant to let him leave the club.

Juventus might need to sell him and also insert a buy-back clause into his contract after they were unable to move transfer-listed strikers like Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain.

Veteran strikers Mandzukic and Higuain are surplus to requirements under the new managerial reign of Maurizio Sarri but Juventus are struggling to find buyers for them.

Moise Kean broke into the first team for both club and country last season.

The Italian international striker scored eight goals in 21 appearances in all competitions as Juventus ended the season with an eighth successive Italian Serie A title.
