Arsenal scouts are flying out to Italy shortly to watch Juventus talent Moise Kean, according to Calciomercato.
The 16-year-old midfielder, who was born in 2000, has been tipped to make his Serie A debut against Sampdoria tomorrow.
Man City and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Italy youth international.
It’s reported the Gunners will have representatives at Juve’s clash with Sampdoria on Tuesday, as well as the showdown with title rivals Napoli on Saturday.
Scouts were also said to have been at the San Siro for the Bianconeri’s battle with AC Milan last Saturday, with Kean on the fringes of the first team.
Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri has hinted recently that Kean isn’t too far off making his bow for the first team:

Even so, according to the report, the forward is someone Arsenal have been following for a while, having tracked his progress in the under-15s and under-17s with Juve already. The Italian champions are said to be intent on getting Kean tied down to an extended contract, with agent Mino Raiola handling negotiations.
