Arsenal eye Gimenez after Sesko snub

Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez has emerged as a summer transfer option for Arsenal after RB Leipzig forward Benjamin Sesko snubbed them, according to the Evening Standard.

The Gunners are moving on to other targets after the Slovenian international opted to remain with the Bundesliga club, and they see the Mexico international as a similar player to him.

Gimenez offers Arsenal a different option in attack, while he also suits their model of being young and with the potential to improve.

The 23-year-old bagged 23 goals and six assists in 30 Eredivisie games this season. He also notched three goals and two assists in 11 games across other competitions.

They are not the only club keen on the Mexican, with Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United, Southampton and Liverpool also keeping tabs on him.

Gimenez is currently valued at £38 million by Transfermarkt, and his value could skyrocket if he impresses at the Copa America later this month.

He is eyeing a move to a bigger league after two seasons in the Dutch top flight, and a chance to join Arsenal could be tempting for him to turn down.

The striker is a very strong finisher who is capable of hitting the ground running in the Premier League.

Landing him could make a huge difference for the Gunners as they bid to mount another title challenge.
