Atalanta’s Rasmus Højlund is having a great season in Serie A and might not stay with his present employers for long.
The 20-year-old Dane only moved to Italy in this campaign, but he has quickly adapted to the new country and continues delivering when called upon.
This has caught the attention of Arsenal and several other European clubs and he will likely change homes when the campaign ends.
A report on Tutto Atalanta reveals several clubs are interested in his signature, and Arsenal’s is one of the most serious.
The report claims the Gunners are even prepared to pay around €50m to add him to their squad at the Emirates.
Just Arsenal Opinion
At 20, Hojlund seems unproven, but the way he has started life in Serie A suggests the attacker is worth adding to our squad.
This means we can trust him to develop and reach the peak of his career on our books.
Our current team is being led to progress by young talents and the Dane could become one of the stars to help us secure our space inside the top four for the next several seasons.
It would be interesting to see if the club believes he is good enough to command €50m.

This kid seems to be heading in the right direction but his price tag is a little too high.
Why pay 50 million pounds for a 20 year old with 6 goals when we have a 21 year old with 16 goals who we are contemplating on selling him?spend the money on caicedo and diaby and we are good to go.
We should probably try Balogun, and spend the cash on Onana,
At 20, Hojlund, scored an hattrick for Denmark tonight. A coming star, that’s for sure. If his price tag is too high only time will tell.
👍It will be interesting to see what his valuation in the coming transfer window. He may be a bargain, given current performance, particularly internationally and the potential for improvement.
Folarin Balogun should not be underrated due to him already being under contract at Arsenal. The old adages “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” and “the grass on the other side of the fence may not be greener.”
IMO Arsenal should have both, Hojlund and Balogun, next season.
