The young centre-half scored in a shock 4-1 win over the San Siro outfit and is now subject to interest from both the Gunners and Borussia Dortmund, while AS Roma and the Nerazzurri themselves are in the hunt too.
Making a name for himself as he helps his side to eighth in the Serie A standings, the Italian has netted three times and assisted another from the heart of the defence while recording an average match rating of 7.11 in his seven starts (WhoScored).
Unai Emery has demonstrated his willingness to give young players a chance in the lineup by bringing through Julio Pleguezuelo in the League Cup and also giving Rob Holding a much deserved run in the starting eleven; with many of the Gunners defenders into their thirties, the Spaniard looks to be preparing for the future by scouting the 22-year-old.
Here’s how Arsenal fans reacted to the reports on Twitter…
I saw him play against inter on Sunday.. He will be a great buy!

No offence to the lad, but at this moment, holding is a better player .

We need to go all out for De Ligt or Skriniar. This kid seems no better than Holding or Mavro

I know this doesn’t count for much but he’s been my go to young centre back in football manager for last few years

I’d take a Hermoso – Mancini centre back partnership for the next decade

Dont think he has quite a lot of potential imo, just get Manolas to link to Sokratis and then sell Mustafi
