Arsenal and Real Madrid are interested in Atalanta striker Rasmus Højlund and have been keeping tabs on the La Dea star in recent weeks.
The Dane has been a shining light for Atalanta this season, having arrived at the club from Sturm Graz last summer and he has impressed with not just his goalscoring, but with his overall skillset as well.
La Repubblica claim that while many clubs are keeping tabs on the striker, Real Madrid and Arsenal are ahead of everyone else for now. Scouts from the Spanish giants were present at the Stadio Olimpico recently, as Lazio had hosted La Dea at home and Højlund had featured in it.
Mikel Arteta is said to have been left impressed by the 20-year-old quite a bit and Arsenal are looking to sign a striker in the summer. Florentino Perez is also said to be a keen fan of the player and a move for him in the summer could be a possibility. Atalanta are not keen on selling him in the summer but a big offer could tempt them into selling.
