Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

AC Milan are reportedly ready to make a bid for Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto, according to Calciomercato via talkSPORT. The Serie A giants are said to be in the market for a central midfielder and have long been an admirer of Jankto. Milan could make an official approach when the January transfer window opens.

Arsenal and Everton have also been linked with the 21-year-old, who last season scored and created nine goals in 24 Serie A starts, and has contributed two goals in five appearances this campaign. The Gunners have long needed to strengthen their midfield, but Jankto may be unlikely to dethrone the likes of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey currently.

Everybody connected with Arsenal were understandably unhappy at missing out on the Champions League places last season and the Gunners playing Europa League football this season.

The Europa League is generally considered the Champions League poor relationship by Premier League clubs. Many English teams have fielded weakened teams and showed the competition a general apathy.

However, last season Manchester United may just have bucked a trend. In truth, United boss Jose Mourinho did not take the competition that seriously. That was until the Red Devils got to the latter stages and it became apparent United could win the competition. It has to be said the Portuguese boss did select pretty strong starting line-ups in the competition.
