Arsenal are interested in signing Juventus defender Daniele Rugani but have been unsuccessful in all of its attempts to get the defender, according to reports.
The Gunners have been constantly linked with the 23 year old in the last three summer transfer windows but nothing concrete has happened.
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.
With the winter transfer window fast approaching, Italian publication Tuttosport via the Daily Cannon are saying Arsenal remain interested in Rugani
However, the report say Juventus have continued to rebuff all of our attempts to sign the defender.
The report also claims Arsenal’s latest bid of around £35m wasn’t good enough to convince Juve to part with the promising defender.
The Italian giants were hoping Rugani would replace their veteran centre back Bonucci who left for Milan in the summer but the young defender has only made ten appearances since the start of the season.
Despite his failure to establish himself in Juve’s starting xi, the Italians are not prepared to sell. Perhaps for the same reason we are reportedly keen on signing him.
