Arsenal are ready to battle it out with Inter Milan for the signing of Rennes wonderkid Ismaila Sarr, who has been likened to Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele

The 20-year-old’s stock is constantly rising, and he scored his first Europa League goal last week – a superb volley against FK Jablonec.

Rennes want around £20million for their star man, and Arsenal are keen to spend big on such a huge prospect.

Sarr went to the World Cup with Senegal and was also on the shortlist for the Golden Boy award, given to Europe’s top prospect.

Inter Milan are also watching the young winger, but Rennes are desperate to hold onto their man at least until next summer.

He has caught the eye of plenty of other Premier League clubs too, with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United all aware of his talents. 

Sarr began his career with Generation Foot in Senegal, before picking up his first professional contract with Metz in 2016.

From there, Rennes splashed out a fee reported to be in the region of £15m to sign him in the summer of 2017.
