Arsenal, BVB scouts see Gianluca Mancini star for Atalanta

Arsenal are watching Atalanta defender Gianluca Mancini.

Mancini has emerged as a mainstay for Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini this season and was outstanding for their rout of Inter Milan.

TMW says the defender's timing couldn't have been better as he scored in front of scouts from Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.

Mancini, 22, is an Italy U21 international and kicked off his career with Fiorentina.

The defender was snapped up by Atalanta last year from Perugia for a bargain basement €200,000.
