Arsenal transfer news: Defender’s agent gives update following speculation

ARSENAL won’t be signing Daniele Rugani, according to the player’s agent.

Unai Emery

Arsenal boss Unai Emery needs to splash the cash

The Gunners were linked with the Juventus ace earlier in the season. 

But his representative - Davide Torchia - has cooled talk of a departure from Turin. 

"Juventus have always considered him unsellable and have never considered selling him," he told talkSPORT.

"The club are very satisfied, they have great respect for the lad and don't want to deprive themselves of his football qualities."

The 23-year-old is out of favour at Juve, having made just 22 Serie A appearances last term. 

Torchia has previously admitted that Arsenal have made contact in the past.

He said: “Arsenal? In the past, some seasons ago, we spoke with them.

"At the moment there are no official contact with them."

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery needs to bolster the Gunners’ back line after losing Per Mertesacker who has hung up his boots to move into coaching. 

Laurent Koscielny is also set to spend the forthcoming campaign on the sidelines after damaging his Achilles in the Europa League final.

Daniele Rugani

Juventus ace Daniele Rugani has been linked with Arsenal

Arsenal’s new chief - who was managing PSG last season - only has a meagre £50m war chest. 

Stephan Lichtsteiner has already been snapped up on a free transfer from Juve. 

Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos is another potential new arrival.
