Arsenal have seen their chances of signing Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara increase after the Serie A side named their price for the player.

According to the Express, Roma want to recoup £27 million for the midfielder and are keen to cash in as they look to go on their own summer recruitment spree.

With that in mind, it would seem as though the Italians are prepared to offload Diawara and Arsenal are firmly in contention to capture the Guinea international.

The 23-year-old played 31 times for the Serie A outfit in all competitions last season; collecting seven cautions in the process.
