Arsenal join Inter Milan in chase for 20m pounds-rated Rennes star Ismaila Sarr

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 are said to want around 20m pounds 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 EPL clubs too, with Liverpool, Chelsea and Man 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 pounds to sign him in the summer of 2017.
