Arsenal are still interested in signing Jakub Jankto, the player’s agent claims.

The Gunners have been linked with the Udinese midfielder for some time, but are yet to submit an official bid.

Jankto, 22, has impressed in the heart of Serie A and and appears to be attracting more and more interest from top clubs across Europe.

The Czech Republican can operate as a central-midfielder or in an advanced role and is lethal from set-pieces.

AC Milan are stated to have expressed an interest in signing Jankto, but it appears they may need to fight off Arsenal for the midfielder’s signature.

As quoted by the Mirror, Jankto’s agent Giuseppe Riso confirmed that he will discuss his client’s future with him in the summer, after the 2017/18 has drawn to a conclusion.

He said: “They are certainly contenders. Jankto is an important player. We decided with the Pozzo family not to talk about this question in January; to allow him to develop and mature.

“Milan and Arsenal are teams who keep an eye on young players, so we will certainly talk about it.”

Jankto has scored three and assisted four for Udinese who currently sit 11th in Serie A.
