Arsenal reportedly prepare to reignite their interest in Internacional starlet Yuri Alberto, who is also being closely monitored by Barcelona.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reportedly added Internacional attacker Yuri Alberto to his wishlist of attacking options.

The Gunners have tied highly-rated prospect Folarin Balogun down to a new long-term contract, but doubts persist over the futures of Eddie Nketiah, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

As a result, Arsenal could be in the market for a new frontman this summer, with Lyon's Moussa Dembele supposedly being eyed up as an ideal signing ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Now, Globo Esporte claims that Arsenal are now ready to reignite their interest in Brazilian starlet Alberto, who they tried and failed to sign as a 17-year-old when he plied his trade at Santos.

Alberto, now 20, has established himself as a regular for top-flight side Internacional, bagging 17 goals and two assists in 49 appearances since arriving in August 2020.

Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in the £11m-rated striker, who has made two appearances for the Brazil Under-23 team and is contracted to Internacional until 2025.
