Arsenal are chasing Genoa attacker Diego Laxalt.

TMW says the Gunners have been scouting the Uruguay international this season.

And with news of Chelsea‘s interest breaking, Arsenal are now stepping up talks with Genoa for Laxalt.

Agent Vincenzo D’Ippolito revealed: “Chelsea? It is one of the clubs [interested] because Conte saw him in Italy, he knows his qualities and he would like to take him to England.”

Laxalt was brought to Europe by Inter Milan three years ago.
