Arsenal are said to be interested in a summer move for Ajax youngster Jorrel Hato. “It was impossible to sign him in January because of the rules,” Fabrizio Romano said on the The Here We Go Podcast.

“He is 17 years old, and is Jorrel Hato from Ajax. So, it was not a deal for January, but Ajax want to extend his contract as soon as possible, and Arsenal try to understand how is the situation around Jorrel Hato. It was again impossible to make the deal happen in January, but Arsenal are following this boy closely. They believe he is a special talent. We saw Arsenal signing players in the recent years from Ajax.

“They wanted Lisandro Martinez, they signed Jurrien Timber, they have a good connection, and they believe that Hato is a player who could be of interest in the future. So, Arsenal wanted to move for steps for this deal for Hato. At the moment, again, Ajax want to extend his contract, but I think this guy is going to be one to watch very soon.”

Sesko interest

Arsenal are also said to be interested in a deal for RB Leipzig star Benjamin Sesko ahead of the summer transfer window. Sesko only joined Leipzig in the summer, arriving from sister club RB Salzburg. Still, Arsenal are willing to offer the German club a swift profit, according to German expert Christian Falk, who told CaughtOffside: “Benjamin Sesko (20) came in the summer for €24m to Leipzig. AC Milan is currently offering €40m. Arsenal are also watching the attacker. He has an exit clause of €50m (contract until 2028).”
