Arsenal boss Unai Emery is looking to complete his summer spending in the final weeks of the window, adding to the five new signings he has already secured for the Gunners.

While the former Paris Saint-Germain boss has incredible options to lead his line in the form of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it is suggested he is seeking another forward addition after launching an enquiry with a European side.

According to Italian outlet Gazetta, Arsenal and West Ham are keen on 23-year-old Torino ace M’Baye Niang following his impressive performances for Senegal at the World Cup – with it stated that Emery is a huge fan of the player.

The former Watford loanee spent last season on-loan with Torino from AC Milan before making his switch permanent earlier this year, finishing the Serie A campaign with a tally of four goals and one assist in 26 appearances.

His stand-out performances came on international duty in Russia, where he scored once and provided an assist in Senegal’s three World Cup matches.
