Arsenal are yet to decide on a priority playmaker target as Mikel Arteta’s side narrow their list down to four main names.

Despite growing transfer gossip in recent days about Arsenal’s pursuit of Leicester City star Maddison, CaughtOffside understands the Gunners’ interest is not yet that advanced, with Aouar long regarded as the club’s preferred option.

Although Locatelli is admired by Arsenal and many other top clubs, it is understood that the Euro 2020 winner is most likely to join Juventus if he leaves Sassuolo this summer.

Houssem Aouar, James Maddison, Ruben Neves and Renato Sanches are on Arsenal’s radar at the moment as they assess the relative merits of each potential deal, CaughtOffside understands.

That leaves a creative midfielder as the next priority for Arsenal, though CaughtOffside understands that links with Sassuolo and Italy star Manuel Locatelli are wide of the mark.

It will be worth keeping an eye on developments with Maddison, Neves and Sanches potentially being targeted by Arsenal, but it may be some time before the club steps up efforts for any of those players, depending on what happens with Aouar.
