Arsenal are interested in signing Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, according to reports.
Wenger who is still looking out for new signings is reportedly interested in bringing in a centre back and is now being linked with Rugani again.
Unlike Virgil Van Dijk who became a prominent name in Arsenal’s rumor mill this summer, Rugani has been constantly linked with Arsenal in the last three summer transfer windows.
Wenger is apparently a big fan of the talented defender and despite it being obvious that our chances of signing him are slim, reports in Italy haven’t just stopped linking us with him.
It wouldn’t have been a complete summer if we didn’t hear about Arsenal being interested in Rugani and Transfer Market Web via the Daily Star has taken a huge step in completing our summer of silly transfer rumors by linking us with the 23 year old defender.
The report claims Arsenal are determined to secure the services of Rugani after Juventus rejected two bids from us for the defender last summer.
it is being claimed that we will use the promise of more regular football to tempt the defender away from Turin.
It is ridiculous to think Juventus will allow Rugani who has a contract with them until 2021 leave the same summer they lost Leonardo Bonucci to Milan.
The Italian giants are looking at Rugani to replace their veteran centre back Bonucci wland it is highly unlikely they will let him go before the end of the transfer window.
Again, it isn’t even certain that Rugani will feature more here than he would have at Juventus. First choice centre back pairing of Koscielny and Mustafi as well as the ever reliable Rob Holding doesn’t guarantee Rugani will have it easy at the Emirates either.
