Arsenal told how they can beat Juventus to 23-year-old Euro 2020 star

Juventus has been installed as favourites to sign Arsenal target, Manuel Locatelli, but the Gunners can still win the race for his signature.

Locatelli has been a star of the Italy national team at the ongoing Euro 2020 and his performances have seen him attract the attention of Arsenal and other top European clubs.

Arsenal and the likes of Borussia Dortmund know that battling Juventus for his signature is almost like fighting a losing battle.

The Old Lady are the biggest club in Italy and Locatelli has a better chance of winning the Champions League with them than any other suitor.

Juve is currently negotiating his sale, but they are struggling and that could help Arsenal sign him.

Gazzetta reports that Juventus wants to pay 30m euros and add a player to make it the complete 40m euros that Sassuolo wants.

Juve also wants to sign him on loan for two seasons before they make payments for his permanent transfer.

These conditions could see them miss out on his signature with the report claiming that Arsenal will sign him if they can pay the 40m euros upfront.

If Arsenal sells Granit Xhaka to AS Roma, they might have the funds available to make the acquisition.

    Arsenal will never buy another No. 10 except Odegaard is not available 4 transfer, either thru loan again, or on a permanent transfer.

  2. Accurate says:

    Locatelli is not a No 10 and am very sure Arsenal are gonna sign another 10

  3. Ozziegunner says:

    Locatelli has all the attributes of a complete midfielder for one so young.
    If €40 million gets the job done, pay the money, provided the player is prepared to join the “Arsenal project” and forego Champions League football. Barring injury, Locatelli has enormous potential, the reason so many clubs are interested in him.

  4. Patrick Karani says:

    His club has confirmed having received ‘an important’ bid from Arsenal. I would interpret that to mean that the bid is acceptable. However, due to the club’s good relationship with Juve, they have opted to give the Old Lady an opportunity to match the bid. Looks like we might sign this guy, if Juve’s reported financial struggles are true.
