Arsenal are readying a £25 million bid for Daniele Rugani to land the Italian defender in the summer and put an end to his struggles at Juventus.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are prepared to make a move for Daniele Rugani in the summer transfer window with his agent hinting towards a possible move to the Premier League. Arsenal and other English clubs have been previously with the highly rated Italian, but this summer a move could be a reality.
Arsenal’s bid to sign a top quality defender hasn’t gone exactly to plan in previous transfer windows. The Gunners’ struggles at the back this season are well documented with their position on the Premier League table indicating the same. To put it in context, they have conceded more goals than bottom side West Bromwich Albion this season.
The North Londoners were keen to add a centre-back in January as well and were heavily linked with a move for West Brom captain Jonny Evans. Arsenal had a bid rejected for the Northern Irishman, but it is unclear whether Arsene Wenger would pursue Evans in the summer, although the stories refuse to die down.
Meanwhile, Arsenal also have an eye on Daniele Rugani, as they continue to monitor his situation at Juventus. Rugani has failed to cement his place in Massimiliano Allegri’s side and has been in-and-out of the team this season.
