ARSENAL have joined the bidding war for Sassuolo star Gianluca Scamacca, reports suggest.
That is according to Calciomercato, who report that the Gunners have submitted a £30m offer for Scamacca.
However, the North Londoners are facing fierce competition from Inter Milan who have had an informal agreement with the striker for some time now.
However, a move for the Italy international has stalled as the Nerazzurri have turned their attentions on departing Juventus star Paulo Dybala and Chelsea ace Romelu Lukaku.
Dybala will be a free agent once his Juve contract expires on June 30 whereas Lukaku is reportedly keen to return to the San Siro after a hapless comeback at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal are looking to take advantage of Inter's distraction and have leapt in with an offer for Scamacca.

The Italian amassed a total of 16 goals and one assist in 38 appearances across all competitions this term.
