Arsenal are keen to attack Steaua Bucharest striker Ianis Stoica ahead of the next January transfer window.

This is according to Romanian media Playsport, which claims that Arsenal is in hiding with intent.

It is reported that Arsenal have been looking for Stoica for two months now. The report adds that Arsenal will travel to Romania to negotiate directly with Steaua in 2022.

Bologna has failed with a € 1.5million (£ 1million) bid for Stoica, but a move is unlikely to blow Arsenal’s banks.

Stoica clearly has a high regard for him, having compared himself to Kylian Mbappe in terms of his style of play.

Arsenal have a certain history with Romanian talents. Vlad Dragomir was once in the club’s ranks while Catalin Cirjan is currently at Arsenal.

Who is Arsenal’s target, Ianis Stoica?

Mainly a winger at this stage, Stoica has scored six goals and had two assists in 14 games this season.

Former Romania international Ilie Dumitrescu hailed Stoica, saying he had “extraordinary flair”.

Stoica could be a real talent for the future, joining Mika Biereth and Folarin Balogun in Arsenal’s attack plans for years to come.

Let’s see if Edu can pull this one off. Arsenal should be able to push back Bologna for Stoica, but more and more clubs could end up joining the race.
