Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante is wanted by Napoli, Juventus, Inter, Liverpool and Lazio, but Arsenal have joined the race for his €30m signature.
He just turned 23 and has had a breakthrough campaign in Bergamo, scoring 10 goals with two assists in 34 competitive games.
Atalanta have the option to buy him from Benfica for just €4m, but have already set his price-tag at €30m, hoping to spark a bidding war this summer.
According to the latest reports, Arsenal are also now interested in purchasing Cristante, impressed by his performances in Serie A and the Europa League.
They are the second Premier League side to be linked after Liverpool, but in Serie A the clubs making an approach include Juventus, Inter, Lazio and Napoli.
