The Gunners have been linked with the Czech international for a while but now they’re apparently closing in on him.

According to Transfermarketweb via the Daily Star, Juventus and Inter are also supposedly keeping an eye on the 21-year-old but Arsenal are keen to get him in order for him to play with Granit Xhaka.

What’s more is that the youngster recently said he would be like to move before the age of 25.

“I want to play abroad, to try some new experience. I’m curious, I want to know other things,” the defensive midfielder told Tuttomercatoweb via talkSPORT. “I certainly do not see myself in Italy too long, certainly not up to 25 years.”
