Arsenal offer rejected for Towering Gabriel Jesus alternative

Reports in Italy are claiming that Arsenal have had an offer of €40 Million rejected by Sassuolo this week as they look to fill the void left up front.

Alexandre Lacazette was confirmed as leaving the club this summer when his contract runs out, confirming what had been on the cards for some time, leaving us with just Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun as options in attack.

While Gabriel Jesus has been mooted as our priority to come in to lead the line next season, it remains to be seen whether we will be able to tempt him to join, especially with the lack of Champions League football a potential issue, and it seems as though we are actively looking at alternatives also.

Alfredo Pedulla claims that we have made an offer to try and sign Gianluca Scamacca, but that the player himself is hoping to have offers from Italy instead.

The Italian is a 6 ft 4″ forward who can score all-manner of goals. If his wish is to stay in his home country then he will likely get his wish, as his stock is higher in Serie A than it is across the continent, but it could well depend on Sassuolo’s asking price.

It will be interesting to see if we return with a bigger offer, knowing that most of our other targets will likely cost in excess of our reported bid above.

Would you be exciting to see Scamacca chosen to lead our attack next season?

  1. for the love of God, can we just steer clear of Italy so as to avoid any further embarrassment

    tbh he’s an interesting prospect, sort of like a young Giroud, but with some pace…not a finished product, so not worth 40M yet…more of a cheaper speculative option than Oshimen or Tammy, who both have better CVs…trending in the right direction though

  2. Italian sources should not be trusted

    Italian players should never be relied upon

    Not sure he’s worth the speculated amount

    If he prefers Italy, then we’ve got another Vlahovic scenario on our hands

  3. Martinez,vlahovic,osimhen,abraham now scamaca.this is starting to become a curse.why not try bundesliga or la liga? Infact i’ll take a champ’ship player with the right attitude instead of always being embarrassed and turned down like a short ugly pauper trying to woo a lady.

    1. Fk, it amazes me that Arsenal does not appear to scout the Championship thoroughly.
      On another track how did Ange Postecoglou get the top scorer (when playing CF for a relegated club) from the top Dutch league for a relative pittance?

      1. Dortmund and RB Leipzig do it nearly every season they take chances on relative unknown players and give them a try and end up saving millions and making millions. It’s frustrating at times.

  4. A player is valued at £40m , you go there bidding £20m. Stalling all the time. The next thing you hear is that he has gotten away to another club. Please, who do Arsenal? Right from history, same altitude to transfer issues. Why? Why can’t we go all out, get our men and stop dilly dolling all the time. Every player in the market is linked to Arsenal but none would eventually come to Arsenal. Who do us this thing?

    1. Sounds like a broken record mate, where you expecting to pay over the line in excess of more than 40m for that player? Who only had this season as his most successful season?

  5. So is this a sign Jesus has already turned us down? were we ever really in for him? it’s hard to believe a word that is written in the press as we are linked with just about everyone atm
    Eddie is still unproven over a whole season(although i think he will do just fine) so lets get someone in to partner him who is in the Prem, Tammy, Zaha, Toney or Watkins would be better than some Italian who doesn’t want to play abroad
