According to reports, Arsenal are still keen on Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani but are yet to table an offer.
The defender has been strongly linked with the North London giants for a number of seasons now.
The player’s name has come up in a number of transfer windows, but no deal ever completed despite the numerous rumours.
Rugani, 23, is now a full member of the Juventus team and is getting more playing time.
Even now, the Gunners remain keen on the youngster, according to the defender’s representative.
“Daniele [Rugani] is doing well, he’s delighted [at the club]. Arsenal? They [Arsenal] didn’t submit an offer, but they [Arsenal] did show their interest [in the defender]. We [the player and agent] respect Juventus,” he informed Radio Sportiva (as per Calciomercato).
The Gunners could do with reinforcing their backline and the Juve starlet would be a decent option.
He’s tagged as one of the brightest talents in Italy and could end up becoming a leading centre-half at the Emirates Stadium for many seasons.
Unfortunately, the Serie A champions are not going to offload such a talented player.
The Gunners would possibly need to offer a huge transfer fee to convince the Italian side to sell.
