Cerci has been strongly linked with a switch away from Torino for the majority of the summer, and reports this week surfaced suggesting that the Gunners are the front runners to snap him up.
And though they are yet to make a bid, Torino’s president, Urbano Cairo, confirmed to reporters that the 27-year-old would be making the move overseas very shortly.
“Cerci’s buyers are overseas,” he said.
The news comes after Cerci was excluded from Torino’s Europa League squad to take on RNK Split on Thursday evening.
The Italian international can play both up front and on the wing, where he scored 13 goals and picked up 12 assists last season.
