Arsenal have reportedly stepped up their interest in AS Monaco winger Keita Balde in the summer transfer window, according to French media outlet Le 10 Sport, as quoted by Metro.
The Gunners are interested in a swoop to sign the Senegal international this summer. However, they haven’t made a concrete offer to sign the 24-year-old midfielder as manager Unai Emery continues to weigh up all his options.
The report goes on to claim, Monaco would be open to selling Balde in this summer’s transfer window after the 24-year-old winger spent the previous season on loan at Inter Milan.
The north Londoners are also interested in Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth and Dalian Yifang’s Yannick Carrasco.
The Gunners haven’t made any signings in the summer so far despite Emery being linked with a number of players since the end of the season.
