Arsenal have reportedly held discussions over the potential €25million transfer of highly-rated Swedish midfielder Dejan Kulusevski.

The 19-year-old has brightened on loan at Parma from Atalanta this campaign, weighing in with two goals and five assists in just 11 matches in Serie A so far.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Kulusevski’s excellent performances have got Arsenal ‘intrigued’ by his talent after some heavy monitoring of the Swedish wonderkid.

Unai Emery’s side could surely do with more quality in midfield at the moment as Granit Xhaka fights and Dani Ceballos is only at the Emirates Stadium on loan for this campaign.

Kulusevski looks like a future star who could make the step up to a bigger club, but TMW notes that Wolves are also in the running to snap him up.

They declare the Sweden Under-21 international would likely cost around €25m, which could end up being a bargain if he achieves his potential, though it perhaps looks a bit of a gamble for a player at this early step in his career.

The Gunners have done well to identify and recruit top young prospects in recent times, such as Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi.
