Arsenal are in danger of missing out on Youssef Msakni as Udinese step up their interest in the Tunisian playmaker, reports talkSPORT.

The 21-year-old turned in a series of scintillating performances in the African Cup of Nations at the start of the year, and has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been weighing up a move for Msakni as he looks to strengthen his midfield options at the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Valued at around £2 million, the talented midfielder would be regarded as a value-for-money purchase, providing interest from Serie A doesn't hike up his asking price.

However, according to reports in Tunisia, Udinese have already made contact with Msakni's club Esperance Tunis, and hope to seal a deal imminently at the expense of Arsenal.

The north Londoners have been linked with a number of midfield additions, most notably Rennes starlet Yann M'Vila.
