Arsenal are reportedly considering a summer approach for Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr, who stood out during the recent Europa League clash between the sides.

The Senegalese footballer was a constant threat to the Gunners backline at Roazhon Park on Thursday night and he bagged Rennes' final goal in a comfortable 3-1 triumph.

According to The Mirror, the north London side have been keeping tabs on the attacker's proceedings over the past six months, and they have been encouraged to make a move after his recent showing against them.

Sarr has already caught the attention of several elite European clubs at the age of just 21 and reports have previously linked him with a potential move to title-chasing Liverpool.

He was previously valued in the region of £40m, but his asking price could rise further after the standout performance against Unai Emery's side during the first leg of the Europa League round of 16.
