Arsenal target breaks silence and looks to suggest his next club

Arsenal has been dealt a transfer blow after Manuel Locatelli broke his silence over his future and admits that he is pleased to be linked with a move to Juventus.

The Gunners face serious competition from the former Italian champions in their bid to sign him.

He was one of Italy’s best players as they won Euro 2020 on Sunday and may have outgrown his current club, Sassuolo.

The Green and Blacks have been in talks with Juventus over signing him, but Arsenal remains his most serious suitors in terms of willingness to pay what Sassuolo wants.

But the midfielder appears to favour a move to Juve which is forcing his club to talk with the Old Lady.

After Italy’s penalty win over England, Locatelli broke his silence on his future and says he has not been paying much attention to the rumour mill and has just been focused on winning the Euros with the Italian national team.

Locatelli told Sky Sport Italia as quoted by the Daily Mail: ‘Up until now, I haven’t really thought about it, I couldn’t. 

‘The interest of Juventus is pleasing, they are a great team and I have said it several times.’

    Lets be honest.. its VERY rare an Italian player leaves Italy.. especially if the old lady comes calling or shows ANY interest whatsoever!!

    Similar to English players.. rarely leave England unless its an offer they just cant refuse..

    ”he was one of Italy best players as they won the euros on Sunday” did you watch Italy at all?

    A player that doesn’t want to come here and wear the shirt with pride and not for money shouldn’t come.. Arsenal was great and will be great again

      Yeah. If locatelli doesn’t want to come then Arsenal should better look elsewhere. Bissouma is a passionate fan of Arsenal, why can’t we sign him? Bring in players who are ready to fight for the shirt because Arsenal is too big a club to be forcing players to join. And I think our recent struggles is playing a part in this nonsense.

      Big problem with Bissouma is the fact that we can’t really afford to have the entire midfield engine room jetting off to the ANC for several weeks mid-season and every other year moving forward.

    It’s the same as Aouar, they want other clubs over us so move on. Can’t blame Locatelli for wanting Juve. Basically every Italian players dream.
