Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali has confirmed talks with Paris Saint-Germain regarding Gianluca Scamacca.

The towering Italian striker, 23, is a target for several clubs this summer after hitting 16 goals for the Serie A club last season.

Carnevali admitted on Thursday night his conversations with PSG advisor Luis Campos, who was appointed by the French side last week to assist in their transfer department.

“Luis Campos is a friend, we also met at the Champions League final,” he told Sky Sports Italia.

“We spoke about a number of players, but certainly Scamacca was the topic of the conversation. I think he is an interesting player for many clubs.”

Sassuolo are reportedly demanding around £43million for Scamacca as Arsenal continue to build their squad for a return to European football next campaign.

Brazilian youngster Marquinhos has already arrived from Sao Paulo with Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira due to follow for an initial £30m.

Arsenal are said to be pushing hard for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus too, who would cost as much as £50m from the Premier League champions.
