Gunning For Goals

Arsene Wenger, fresh from a new wave of support from the Arsenal hierarchy, is chasing a deal for Roma’s 6ft 6ins teenage forward Umar Sadiq in the summer, according to reports in Italy.

The 19-year-old Nigerian is on loan at Roma from Spezia this season, but the Gunners believe that they can muscle in with a £13m offer to bring him to London in the summer.

The Gunners could be missing out on another target from Roma, though, with Chelsea muscling in on their move for the Belgian midfielder Radja Nianggolan.

Nainggolan, 27, is a fans’ favourite in the Italian capital, but prospective Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has reportedly put him on top of his wanted list.
