According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are in pole position to sign Udinese youngster Jakub Jankto.

It was reported that The Gunners were to sign the 21-year-old in the summer but the deal fell through, but they are back in the running to sign the Czech Republic international.

AC Milan and champions Juventus are also tracking Jankto as they both look to challenge for the Serie A title this season, but Arsenal want to sign the youngster as they look to progress in the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League and FA Cup this season and they cannot rely on Jack Wilshere to stay fit all season.

Jankto has made 13 appearances for Udinese this season, scoring and assisting twice, which reignited The Gunners’ interest in the midfielder, who has a very small £6m release clause in his contract despite him being one of Europe’s biggest talents.

Mourinho wants Ozil as his no.10 next season .
Jose Mourinho is keen to sign Mesut Ozil this summer to fill the gap left in the Manchester United side. The Telegraph reports that Mourinho has pinpointed the German has a summer transfer target, as his contract runs down at Arsenal. Mourinho is looking for a fresh face to come into the United side and be the key playmaker. The former Chelsea boss has been critical of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in recent weeks, putting his long-term future at Old Trafford in doubt. Mourinho and Ozil worked together at Real Madrid and the Portuguese boss has been very complimentary about the German in the past, hailing him as ‘the best number 10 in the world’. The player could be on the move in January if Arsenal do decide to cash in on him, rather than lose him for nothing in the summer, but the report suggests Mourinho wants to sign him on a free transfer at the end of the season.
