Arsenal, Manchester United want to sign 19-goal striker

Sima on Arsenal, Manchester United radar

Slavia Prague forward Abdallah Sima is reportedly attracting interest from Arsenal and Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window.



Sima was regularly linked with a Premier League move last summer, but nothing materialised beyond the initial speculation.

Over the course of the current campaign, he has netted 19 goals with eight assists, and reports claim that he could be on the move this summer.

According to The Mirror, the Gunners are weighing up a possible move for the striker amid the uncertain future of Alexandre Lacazette.

Lacazette's contract expires at the end of next season, and he appears set to leave the club when the transfer window reopens.

Sima was valued at £50m last year, but he could be available for a lesser fee of around £35m amid Slavia's financial concerns.

United are also interested in the marksman despite the fact that Edinson Cavani recently extended his contract for next season.

West Ham United and Leeds United have also been linked with Sima.
