Agent insists Arsenal target has never thought of leaving Juventus

Arsenal relentlessly pursued the signature of Manuel Locatelli last year after his impressive performances at Euro 2020.

The midfielder played for Sassuolo at the time and Mikel Arteta’s side battled Juventus to sign him.

However, the Gunners lost because he was determined to play for only Juve and has been on their books in the last two seasons.

Locatelli is not making the impact expected and reports continue to link him with an exit.

Arsenal reportedly still has an interest in his signature, however, his agent insists they have never considered leaving Turin.

Stefano Castelnovo tells Tuttosport: “It is true that there were some good opportunities from England last summer, but the player is contracted to Juventus and he has never thought of leaving.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Locatelli remains one of Italy’s finest midfielders and he could do a good job for us if we can sign him.

However, it is hard to convince Italian players to leave their league to join a team in the Premier League.

At Juve, he is playing for the biggest club in his homeland and it will be difficult to convince him to dump them for a spell at the Emirates.

We need to focus on signing another player who will be happy to move to the Emirates and live in London.

  1. Manuel Lacottelli now looks a shadow of his self and we might have just move on.

    Under the right stewardship his name would have figure preeminent on Mancini national team sheet, but he has regress significantly and all that potential has disappeared some what

    It is said time waits on no man.

  2. YET ANOTHER IN THTLONG LINE OF ARTICLES THAT SAY WE ARE INTERESTED IN A PLAYER BUT THAT IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.
    I AGREE IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. But I have to ask why the hell does JA constantly use this oh so predictable article almost every day?!!

    You can easily write the article yourself, as all that ever changes is the NAME of the latest, “we are interested in but he is not coming” player in question. HOW BORINGLY REPETITIVE!!
