Arsenal are interested in signing Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr, according to the Mirror.
The Gunners will, however, face some competition for the Senegalese international with Inter Milan also scouting the £20m rated wide man.
Fans on Twitter are excited by the club possibly signing Sarr:

The boy is good.. Everything we expected iwobi to become, unfortunately he hasn't,only need a little extra strength saw his videos on YouTube now,he falls a little easily but commits defenders alot and causes alot of penalties. Would be a great addition and can play on the right

Although some others are more sceptical:
Think we need to look at more high profile defenders right now

Scores a screamer. Quadruples in value

Nicolas Pepe better than him

It looks like manager Unai Emery is keen to add some pace to the wings going by the types of players the club are being linked with. Sarr is a fast winger, who cuts in from the left-hand side onto his right foot.
The London club have also been linked with Lille’s Nicolas Pepe, Dalian Yifang’s Yannick Carrasco and Boca Juniors’ Cristian Pavon; all of whom have pace and are able to run at opposing defences.
Sarr, in particular, is blessed with a fair amount of speed, and he has already scored three times for Rennes in just seven appearances so far this season.
