Arsenal saw an initial €13m offer for Umar Sadiq rejected, but it’s reported Roma will sell the striker for €15m.
The Nigerian talent only just turned 19 last month and has been a sensation at the Primavera youth team level.
This season he scored five goals in nine UEFA Youth League games, plus another 11 in seven matches in Italy.
He was already given his Serie A debut this term, scoring twice in six appearances.
According to La Repubblica newspaper, Roma have already turned down an initial €13m proposal from Arsenal.
However, they would be prepared to part with Sadiq for €15m (£11.6m).
That would be almost five times the money Roma invested in signing him from Spezia.
