Arsenal have started to find their rhythm under the guidance of Unai Emery, winning their last four Premier League matches to surge up the standings.
The Gunners are still in the process of a redevelopment following two decades under Arsene Wenger, who left his role in the summer, and the squad is likely to experience further changes when the January window reopens.
One position of focus could be in the wide areas as Arsenal have so far failed to replace Alexis Sanchez following his departure to join Manchester United midway through last season, although it seems the Gunners have an ace up their sleeve.
20-year-old Ismaila Sarr is said to be a target for Arsenal, with the North London giants keeping close tabs on a player who caught the eye with Senegal at the World Cup and who was shortlisted for the prestigious Golden Boy award.
The Rennes ace has been likened to Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele in the past and fans have had their say on the links on social media. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Ismaila Sarr is exactly what we need, biggest unestablished youth potential in Ligue 1.

Ismaila Sarr has been considered one of the upcoming stars since the WC.The winger of the Rennes is on the cards at top-clubs , and his shares rise with every hit – like the spectacular EL goal last week. Great player and he is only 20 years old.

Saw Arsenal was interested in Ismaila Sarr of Rennes.That lad is quick and nifty.
With him and Bellerin our right flank would be on fire.

The boy is good.. Everything we expected iwobi to become, unfortunately he hasn’t,only need a little extra strength saw his videos on YouTube now,he falls a little easily but commits defenders alot and causes alot of penalties. Would be a great addition and can play on the right
