Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing 23-year-old Juventus center back Daniele Rugani.
After signing Stephan Lichtsteiner, Unai Emery is looking to bolster the defence even further and has been linked with Daniele Rugani.
The youngster is already working his way into the Juventus squad and is an exciting prospect. Making 26 appearances this season while fighting against the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Medhi Benatia for minutes.
Standing at 6’2, the player could add a real aerial threat to the Gunners who have often lacked in both defensive and offensive set-piece situations.
The defender who is valued at €40m(£35m), has been connected with a number of clubs across Europe in the last few seasons and has been linked with a move to the Emirates since January.
However, according to TalkSport, the Gunners have ‘no chance’ of the signing the player. This comes after Rugani’s agent, Davide Torchia, explained how Juventus have no plans to let the Italian international go.
“It’s been a very positive season for Daniele,” Torchia told TuttoJuve.”
“He’s played more than 1000 minutes in the league and made 26 appearances, including 25 as a starter.”
“It’s a nice improvement compared to the previous season and there is space to be able to do better next year.”
“At Juventus it’s not enough just to be a good defender, you always have to do more.”
“Juventus have always considered him unsellable and have never considered selling him.”
“The club are very satisfied, they have great respect for the lad and don’t want to deprive themselves of his football qualities.”
Sometimes agents’ words can be cryptic and in modern football, anything could happen between now and the end of the transfer window, so Rugani may be a name for fans of the North London club to remember.
