Fabrizio Romano confirms Arsenal scouting Italy talent after manager recommends Emirates move

Arsenal are among a host of top clubs keeping tabs on Fiorentina starlet Michael Kayode, according to Fabrizio Romano – following one manager urging the right-back to join Mikel Arteta’s side.

Kayode is making waves in Italy, having forced his way into the Fiorentina team despite being only 19 years old. So far this season he has made nine appearances in Serie A and the Europa Conference League, though he is currently out of action due to injury.

Kayode’s impressive performances at club level have also seen him establish himself in Italy’s U21 squad.

The teenager could soon leave Italy, though. Arsenal were the first English club to be named as a potential suitor, only to be joined by Manchester United and Manchester City in the transfer pursuit.

But on Saturday, the Gunners were given a boost as Kayode’s former boss at Serie D club Gozzano, Antonio Soda, namechecked them when discussing where the full-back might head next.

“He doesn’t think about who he has in front of him,” Soda said.

“He doesn’t do it on purpose, but because he relies on his qualities, since he also comes from the world of athletics. He is a guy who has respect and deserves everything he has achieved.

“I would take him to the European Championship, because he is a player who can become really strong, who has already been sought after by Arsenal.”
