Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made an opening offer to Sassuolo Arsenal transfer target Gianluca Scamacca.

The Gunners are in need of signings following the departures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Scamacca, who scored 16 Serie A goals for Sassuolo last season, is likely to be shortlisted for the north London club.

Gazzetta dello Sport has previously claimed this Arsenal had a bid of around £35million for the dismissed striker.

Now Sky Italia are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have presented an opening offer of £30m plus bonuses which was rejected by the club.

Sassuolo are reported to be asking for a £43m transfer fee for the 23-year-old with negotiations between the Italian club and PSG expected to continue.

Another striker linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium is Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus.

The 25-year-old knows Mikel Arteta, who worked with the Spain manager during his time as an assistant at the Etihad Stadium.

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Jesus would be keen to sign for the Gunners based on three factors.

“Manchester City want good money because he’s young, fit and a Brazil international,” Campbell told the Highbury Squad.

“You could say he’s world class. He starts for Brazil.

“He’s the best pressing forward out there and that’s what Mikel Arteta needs – he’s one of the key pieces we need.

“Jesus can go and play Champions League football.

“But he wants to come to Arsenal, firstly because he knows the manager, secondly because he knows the system and thirdly, which is the most important thing, he wants to be the captain.”
