Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing midfielder Bryan Cristante from Portuguese giants Benfica, according to CalcioMercato.

Bryan is currently on loan at Italian club Atalanta, who currently sit eight in the Italian top flight. They were also just knocked out of the Europa League in the last round by Borussia Dortmund.

Cristante has netted seven goals in the domestic league and three in the Europa League, as he has been in excellent form this season.

These magnificent performances have not gone unnoticed, as The Gunners appear interested in bringing him to the Emirates this summer transfer window.

After all, the Gunners are not the only club interested in the 23-year-old, with other EPL teams including West Ham United, Watford, and Liverpool reportedly also keen.

Additionally, Atalanta are keen on making his loan from the Portuguese club a permanent deal to keep him in Italy, where Arsenal travel to face AC Milan in the Europa League Round of 16, who are one place ahead of Atalanta in the league.

Arsenal are going to make a whole host of transfer incomings and outgoings after a frustrating season in the Premier League, with Bryan Cristante potentially making a move to North London.
