The agent of one reported Arsenal target has met with Serie A side AC Milan to discuss a possible move, reports in Italy claim.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Milan’s Sporting Director Massimiliano Mirabelli met with the agent of Udinese starlet Jakub Jankto at their training complex on Thursday.

Arsenal have also been rumoured to be hot in pursuit of the Czech international, who has already bagged five goals so far this season across all competitions.

The 21-year-old joined Udinese from Slavia Prague in summer 2014 for a reported fee of €700k, but was loaned out immediately to Serie B outfit Ascoli.

Earlier in the week, his agent Giuseppe Riso revealed that he believes his client would be a good fit for the Premier League, possibly trying to spark a bidding war.

“We’ll talk about his possible transfer at the end of the season though, now he is only focused on Udinese.”
