Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern don’t quite know what to make of what they have just read in the Metro, with the publication claiming that Arsenal are set to launch an £11m bid for Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani.
The defender has failed to make a first-team appearance for the Serie A club, however has made numerous appearances for Empoli.
It is no secret here in the Tavern that Arsenal are eyeing a move for a new centre-back, and Rugani is the latest player to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
The 20-year-old has been an ever-present figure in the Italy national side youth setup, having plied his trade for the under-17 side all the way up to the under-21 side.
Arsenal fans deliberating the deal here in the Tavern feel this is not the type of player the Gunners should be targeting, with most of them agreeing that they should only be looking at established, world-class players!
