Arsenal still in the race for Euro 2020 winner but he has given them a response

Arsenal remains keen to add Manuel Locatelli to their squad this summer despite the overwhelming odds that are against them as Juventus and Sassuolo negotiate his transfer.

After his fine performance at Euro 2020, several teams in England and other countries became linked with a move for him.

Arsenal showed their seriousness by making their interest official and they have maintained it.

Gazzetta.it reports that the Gunners remain keen to sign him, but he has told them that he has no interest in moving to the Emirates at the moment.

Locatelli has maintained that his first choice is joining Juventus and he seems to believe that the Old Lady will eventually agree with Sassuolo over his signature.

Juventus is pricing the talented midfielder too low and that has been the reason why an agreement hasn’t been reached between both clubs yet, but they are still negotiating.

Arsenal has signed Albert Sambi Lokonga this summer, but they are very likely to get more midfielders through the door before this transfer window closes.

They remain in the hunt for Houssem Aouar and could lose both Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka.

If both midfielders leave, then they might be forced to sign up to two more players as replacements.

    you need to let this go, it is extremely embarrasing for you.

  2. Dacoster says:

    The player has made up his mind, Italian players are always like dat….They find it difficult to travel abroad,we should forget about dis guy and go for does players that really want to play for us.

  3. Benex says:

    Why on earth are Arsenal persisting on him, he’s made up his mind on join Juve, we should look elsewhere, Bisouma can be a good addition, alot of EPL experience plus he’s ready to move, Neves is also an option, why putting much energy on what can’t be yours.

  4. RSH says:

    I agree with others that it’s perhaps time to let this go. He seems totally set on Juve and i have a hard time seeing him being happy here if his heart wont be 100% in it.

    Another Lucas Torreira, gunners on paybook but heart with Boca Juniors
    This guy is good but yet to be proven in EPL.
    Rather get bissouma or groom Sambi, at times age doesn’t count, ESR and Saka carried the team while being the youngest players

      Juventus are delaying this as soon as arsenal give up Sassuolo will be forced to let him go for cheap ask me they not smart but sly

  6. Dan kit says:

    Come Martin
    You didnt allow my post ,even though I was bigging you up .
    @adpat why doesn’t Martin interact with us anymore

  7. Marty says:

    Please no more articles about this guy, it’s plainly obvious he has no interest in joining us. It would make far more sense to go for somebody with EPL experience anyway.

  8. gunnerforlife says:

    Locateli is not interested in joining Arsenal so Arsenal must forget him. And also we dont know if the PL will suit him. Lets go for either Madison or Aouar and Bissouma.

  9. Gmv8 says:

    He is too much of a risk and I don’t think his performances were that fantastic in Europe 2020 for Arsenal to be doing this. Juve is his level, let him go and let’s stop embarrassing ourselves. Odergaard looks available now anyway – much better to put our efforts into a guy who has proven himself with us and want to come to us

  10. Mark Osei says:

    He is a good player that’s why we are pushing for his signature, but let not forget he is entitled for his views or opinion. If later he decides for some reason he will join us .after all we want quality players so he is welcome.
