Arsenal are in the hunt for Torino’s Paraguayan striker Antonio Sanabria according to reports in Italy.
The 27-year-old has enjoyed a good season in Serie A, scoring 12 times in 31 appearances for The Bull, who currently sit tenth in the league with only two matches left to play.

This season spells Sanabria’s most consistent however, with Torino’s number nine failing to hit double figures in terms of goals in each of his last six seasons, spread across Serie A and La Liga.
According to the Italian outlet La Repubblica (via Area Napoli), Sanabria’s name is cropping up for a second time at the Emirates Stadium after it was reported that former manager Arsene Wenger was interested in signing the striker back in 2015 when the former Roma man was still a teenager.
Eight years on, it is being reported that the Gunners are set to discuss a $26.7m deal with Torino but expects to face competition for Sanabria’s services, with AC Milan and Serie A champions Napoli also interested.
