Erling Braut Haaland and his father have personally visited Arsenal as the Gunners join as many as 20 European clubs in the race for his signature.
Sport Bild (via Sport Witness) report that Unai Emery’s side are just as interested as Manchester United and Bayern Munich in the striker, two clubs that have been heavily linked with a move.
They claim Haaland and his father have personally visited the Gunners, though the suggestion is that Arsenal are only likely to make an offer if they also let go of one of their current strikers.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette still at the club, and Gabriel Martinelli making waves behind them, it would be difficult to justify Arsenal signing another striker and holding onto those three as well.
With RB Salzburg dominating the Austrian first division, Haaland has racked up 15 goals and six assists in 12 league games and four in his two cup appearances. He’s been just as impressive in the Champions League though, scoring seven in four matches including one against Liverpool and three in two games against Napoli.
Whether the 19-year-old could keep up that kind of record when playing regularly in a more competitive league remains to be seen, but it’s no surprise he’s drawing so much interest from around Europe right now.
