Wow! Arsenal Plot £13m January Move for a Star Defender

North London outfit Arsenal are preparing a bid of around £13m to sign Juventus center-back Daniele Rugani in the January transfer window, as per recent claims from Italy. It is being suggested by Calciomercato that the Premier League giants will make an official bid for the 21-year-old defender in the upcoming transfer window, as manager Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his back-line.

Arsenal did not buy a single outfield player in the recently concluded summer transfer window, with for Chelsea keeper Petr Cech being their only buy for £11m. The French manager’s side were the only team in Europe’s top five leagues, who did not buy a single outfield player in the window.

Rugani has still not represented Italy at the top level till now, but is part of their Under-21 side at the moment. The youngster also spent the previous campaign on loan at Empoli, where he made a total of 38 appearances for the Serie A side.
