Serie A champions Juventus will rival Arsenal in the summer for Wolfsburg prodigal attacking midfielder Maximilian Arnold, reports the Mirror.
The 19-year-old has excelled in Germany this season, scoring six goals from his 13 appearances. He has played in a variety of positions across the attacking midfield area, and drawn comparisons to Arsenal’s very own Mesut Ozil because of his intricate passing and extraordinary vision.
Clubs around Europe have taken note of Arnold’s form, and have become particularly interested in him after hearing his Wolfsburg release clause currently stands at a bargain £8m.
Arsenal would be more than prepared to pay this for the youngster who has so far represented Germany at every youth level, but will face competition from the Italian giants come June.
Arnold could provide Arsenal with a much cheaper, if far less high-profile option than Schalke’s starlet Julian Draxler, who the club were linked heavily to in January. Draxler has a £37m release clause, but the Gunners could still go back in for him come the end of the season.
