Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton are all weighing up moves for Udinese centre-back Rodrigo Becao, according to TuttoUdinese.it.
The Italian website claims that the three Premier League teams are “in the front row” to snap up the Brazilian at the end of the season.
Becao joined Udinese from Bahia in the summer of 2019 but it is his performances this campaign that have grabbed the attention of scouts.
After scoring in the 4-2 defeat to AC Milan on the opening day, he then helped Udinese to six wins in seven matches, conceding only four goals in the process.
Since Becao picked up a muscular injury at the back end of last month, his side have not won a single match, demonstrating his importance to the Serie A club.
Previous reports have suggested that the 26-year-old will likely be available for around €20m (£17m), which is an asking price that won’t put off the Gunners if they press ahead with a formal bid.
