U21 France international is ready for free after evacuating Nice at the end of his deal. The 21-year-old is one of the most electrifying prospects in Europe. His condition has urged a host of clubs indicating an interest.
Arsenal has given him a deal. Gunners desperately need to enhance their defense this summer with both David Luiz and Sokratis aging while Shkodran Mustafi fails to ascertain. The Gunner's defensive flaws came to the fore in the 2-1 derby defeat to Spurs, with Tottenham staking from slack defending for both of their goals.
The 21-year-old is active, competitive, and boasts many talents perfect for the London giants in their position. But the latest reports from Italy imply they could miss out on his signature. The Italian club is in pole position, fending off great interest from rivals Atalanta. This past march Sarr played 20 games across all games to date for OGC Nice.
The contract has been struck with the Italian club. If reports are true, it would be a blow for Arsenal as a lack of Champions League football means the Spanish manager will be working with a restricted budget this summer. Malang Sarr played 19 top-flight games for Nice last march.
Torino aside, Fiorentina, Napoli, AC Milan, Lazio, and Inter have all also been connected with the French center-back but the report explains that Torino is ahead of all of the tournaments in the race to land the defender, whose professional career began back in 2016.
