Udinese have been one of the best teams in Europe when it comes to acquiring youth talent and selling it to bigger clubs. They did it with Alexis Sanchez back in the day, and could be in line to make another massive piece of business in the coming months.
According to several reports, some of the top teams in Europe have started scouting Jakub Jankto. The 21-year-old is widely considered one of the top prospects in Europe, and has emerged as a reliable scoring threat in midfield for the Serie A side. His ability to play all over the pitch has attracted some of the best teams in the world, and he might not have much time left playing at Dacia Arena.
AC Milan were linked with the Czech midfielder during the summer, but no move was completed. Juventus are keeping a close tab on him as well, but now two Premier League sides have joined the race to sign him, as both Arsenal and Everton are interested in the dynamic playmaker.
Milan are reportedly ahead of the pack to sign him, though. They are keen to sign him as early as January, but Udinese are not likely to let him go in the middle of the campaign. But it would be a shock if he remains at Udinese next season.
The former Slavia Prague youngster has been tipped as a star of the future and he is impressing in Italy at the moment, scoring seven goals and creating five more in just 35 appearances in midfield.
