Arsenal prepare fresh bid to seal transfer of £35 million rated Juventus defender.
Arsenal are reportedly set to try again to seal the transfer of Juventus defender Daniele Rugani after being linked with him in January.
The Gunners’ league rivals Manchester United are also interested in signing Rugani this summer. Both sides look in need of strengthening at the back this summer, with Italian reports claiming the Gunners could be looking at Rugani to replace the under-performing Shkodran Mustafi.
The Germany international has not lived up to expectations at the Emirates Stadium and it’s clear the club cannot rely on him and other players for much longer. Callum Chambers and Rob Holding are not much in the way of backup, and Per Mertesacker will be retiring at the end of the season.
United see Rugani as an upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, though they may have more big-name targets in mind.
