Arsenal are among a number of top Premier League clubs with an interest in Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka ahead of this summer.

Salzburger Nachrichten report that Red Bull Salzburg are going to struggle to hold onto Patson Daka this summer, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal all in the race for the striker.

Salzburg are willing to sell for the right price, which currently stands at the same as Borussia Dortmund paid for Erling Haaland (€20m), if not more.

Like Haaland before him, Daka is dominating the scoring charts in Austria, with 20 league goals and another seven in all competitions. He also has five assists in his 31 appearances, as well as winning a few penalties.

On the subject of penalties, only two of Daka’s 61 career goals for Salzburg have come from the penalty spot, so there’s no sense of artificial inflation in his numbers.

Unsurprisingly, the 22-year-old is garnering further interest every time he makes it onto the scoresheet. 90min claim Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Daka since early in the current campaign, with scouts believing he’s ready for a Premier League move.

If Arsenal sell a striker or two this summer, which seems very possible, perhaps they’ll push for Daka to join as a replacement.
