Ismaila Sarr TEAMtalk

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing moves two of Europe’s top young talents – Rennes starlet Ismaila Sarr and Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.

Gunners head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is plotting the club’s long-term future and the Sunday Mirror claims that winger Sarr and midfielder Havertz are well in his sights.

Sarr has already attracted attention from Barcelona, and Rennes will reportedly cash in on the 20-year-old over the next 12 months.

The attacker has already scored three times this season in 10 appearances, including a strike in the Europa League.

Havertz, meanwhile, has already played over 50 games for Leverkusen and won his first senior cap for Germany against Peru in September.

The 19-year-old has notched four times this campaign, with three of those coming in Europa League wins over Ludogorets and AEK Larnaca.

Both players have already earned plenty of plaudits throughout Europe and it would prove to be a real coup for the Gunners if they landed the pair.
