The agent of Udinese prospect Jakub Jankto says the Czekh Republic midfielder “will definitely talk” to Arsenal.

Jankto has been attracting the attention of clubs across Europe with his performances for Udinese, with Arsenal credited with an interest last summer.

Five goals and six assists this season have kept eyes on the former Slavia Prague youth player, with AC Milan and Arsenal among the teams tracking Jankto.

“They’re eligible teams,” Jankto’s agent, Giuseppe Riso, told RMC Sport.

“Jankto is an important profile, we decided with the Pozzos not to talk about it in January to let him grow and mature.

“Milan and Arsenal are attentive to youngsters, we’ll definitely talk with them.”

Last summer, Riso said that Jankto would suit English football.

“Arsenal like him, he’s a lover of English football, and he’s also liked by Juve, Inter and other teams.

“Still, he’s young, he’s 21 years old, he must be calm and he’s only thinking about Udinese.

“After that, we’ll see. Do I see him more in the Premier League than other Leagues? Yes.”
