English Premier League club Arsenal has tabled a bid for Nigerian striker Sadiq Umar.
Italian newspaper La Republica reports that the Serie A giant, AS Roma, has rejected Arsenal’s initial approach for the 19-year-old thought to be in the region of £10.25 million.
Roma will only listen to offers for the Nigerian starlet if an improved offer is made by the North London club.
It is understood the Rome-based club want at least £11.8 million for the young striker.
Sadiq has impressed at youth level and had scored five goals in nine UEFA Youth League games, plus another 11 in seven matches in Italy.
Despite his relative inexperience, the target man has already made his full first-team debut and has scored two goals in six appearances. Umar joined Roma from Spezia in 2014.
