Blow for Arsenal as Juventus closes in on World Cup winner

Arsenal is set to fail in its pursuit of Alexis Mac Allister as the midfielder closes in on moving to Juventus.

The World Cup winner is on the radar of several European sides after his fine performances for Argentina in the competition.

Arsenal is one of several Premier League clubs that hoped he would stay in the competition and join them.

However, a report in the Daily Mail reveals he has chosen to move to Juve and the Italians now have to sort out an agreement with Brighton.

But the report adds the Italians must sell before they can make him one of their own, which opens up room for Arsenal to still land him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mac Allister was superb at the World Cup and it was clear he would leave Brighton for a bigger club, which should be us.

This news is a blow, but unless the deal is sorted, we can still hijack it and that should be our target for now.

Before Juve offloads the players they need to buy him, we could convince his entourage to choose a move to London and lay out a clear plan for his continuous development.

  1. First of all, which player in their right mind would go to Juve right now. Secondly I don’t even think the interest in him was that serious, unless he can play as deep lying midfielder or striker, this is really not a big deal IMHO.

  2. I would think that with the financial trouble Juventus are already in that they would be selling this window, not buying and not paying over the odds because a player had a good World Cup.

  3. ha ha he’d be the dumbest human on earth to move to Juve at a time when the club is staring at demotion to serie B.

  4. I don’t think Juve is in huge trouble as the papers write. Looks like they are very calm and confident in winning the case. I’m pretty sure Mac Allister is aware of that and that’s why he’s keen on joining them. Too bad for us, but there are plenty of other players. Besides, Brighton will demand a hefty price to be paid

  5. @Ron They’re publicly traded meaning any payment must be captured in their books or it’s financial fraud. Did they make payments outside the books? Well they seem to acknowledge that fact but argue it was all legal!!
