Arsenal leading race to sign 11-goal attacker linked with Man United & Tottenham

Arsenal are keen on signing the Besiktas attacker Semih Kilicsoy at the end of the season.

According to a report from HITC, several top clubs have been scouting the 18-year-old striker this season and there is likely to be a fierce competition for his signature in the summer.

Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign the 18-year-old striker and it remains to be seen whether they can get the deal done. Kilicsoy has 11 goals in all competitions this season and he is versatile enough to operate on both flanks as well as the centre forward.

The Turkish international has the tools to develop into a top-class attacker for Arsenal in the coming seasons. The Gunners need to add more depth in the final third and the 18-year-old would be a long-term investment for them.

Gabriel Jesus has not been able to score goals consistently this season and he has found the back of the net just four times in the league. Arsenal clearly need more quality in the attack and Kilicsoy could compete with him for the starting spot next season. The Turkish International might be young, but he has the quality and maturity to play in the first team. He will look to establish himself as a regular starter for the club in the coming seasons.

Besiktas will not want to lose a prized young prospect like him any time soon, but they could be tempted if Arsenal come forward with a lucrative proposal.

Man United and Tottenham want Semih Kilicsoy
The report from HITC claims that Tottenham and Manchester United are keen on the player as well.

Tottenham are yet to sign a long-term replacement for Harry Kane and the Turkish international could prove to be an interesting acquisition. He is versatile enough to operate anywhere across the front three and he will add goals and creativity to the side.

At Manchester United, he could start alongside Rasmus Hojlund and share the goalscoring burden with the Denmark international.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually. A player of his quality is unlikely to be a cheap acquisition and Besiktas could demand a premium for him.
