Umar Sadiq: Roma forward wanted by Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund

Arsenal have made a move for Roma striker Umar Sadiq but face competition from Borussia Dortmund, the youngster’s agent has revealed.

It was reported over the weekend that Arsenal had failed with a £10.25million for Sadiq, who is currently only on loan at Roma from Spezia, with an agreement in place to make the deal permanent for a fixed price in the summer.

The 19-year-old’s agent Mohammed Lawal has now confirmed the Gunners’ interest.

“Yes we have been approached by Arsenal, but they are not the only team that have signify interest in Sadiq as Borussia Dortmund are also pushing for him,” Lawal told

“In the coming days or weeks we will know where he is heading to, but for now he is very happy and focused at Roma”.

Sadiq has scored two goals in six Serie A appearances so far this season after impressing for the club’s youth side.
