Daniele Rugani is a promising Italian Centre back who plays for Juventus. He is a tall, tactically versatile and is good in the air, both offensively and defensively. He is a very correct player in the sense that he prefers to avoid challenges and instead restricts his opponents through positioning. However, Rugani has struggled for game time, making only 20 appearances last season.
Arsenal are very keen to fix the leak in their backline and someone like Rugani could prove to be invaluable. They have even offered to take the centre back on a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy. However, Juventus have turned down the offer despite bringing in Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax. Concerns over Giorgio Chiellini’s fitness have meant that Sarri is uneasy over letting Rugani leave.
Arsenal though are very keen to bring Rugani to the Emirates. So much so that they have even offered to buy Sami Khedira as part of the deal according to Gazzetta dello Sport. If Arsenal can somehow convince Juventus to part with Rugani and bring in Tierney as well, Arsenal would very well be placed to finish top 4 this season and the years beyond.
