Despite being heavily involved in the transfer window of last summer, there seem to be a dearth of quality in the team of Arsenal.
JUVENTUS are reportedly on the verge of wrapping up youth star Moise Kean’s new contract in a deal that will end Arsenal and Manchester City’s interest in the youngster.
Juventus want Kean, 17, to sign a new contract now in order to keep him tied to the club.
They are aware that he could leave as early as 28 February next year, when he turns 18 years old.
In November Arsenal, Manchester City and Ajax emerged as suitors of the frontman, who made his debut that month in a 3-0 Serie A win over Pescara.
Kean has gone on to play twice more for the Juve first team and manager Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly happy with what he’s seen.
And Italian outlet Calciomercato claim the club are now ready to hand Kean a professional contract.
According to the report, Juve will propose a deal worth up to £174,000 (€200,000) a year, or £3,300 a week.
Kean would be able to command much more money if he decided against the deal and instead looked towards the Premier League.
But the report claims discussions between Juve officials, Kean’s family and his agent have led to an agreement that should soon be signed.
And with that Kean is likely to see his transfer value rocket, with City and Arsenal then set to look elsewhere for new targets.
