Ronaldo pushing Juventus to sign Arsenal target this summer

Arsenal is set to miss out on the signing of Renato Sanches this summer as he closes in on a move to Juventus.

The Portuguese midfielder won Ligue 1 with Lille last season as one of their best players in the competition.

He has been a long-term target of the Gunners and their need for new midfielders in this campaign sped up talks of him joining them.

Arsenal has added Albert Sambi Lokonga to their squad and they look close to keeping Granit Xhaka on a new contract.

However, they have continued to be linked with new midfielders and that means Sanches might still move to the Emirates.

If the Gunners truly want him, they would have to move fast to secure his signature now because Todofichajes says he might be heading to Italy.

Juventus wants him and they are being pressured by Cristiano Ronaldo to complete his signing.

The Portugal captain wants to share the dressing room with his compatriot in the upcoming season and has urged Juve to find an agreement with Lille.

The report claims their bid for his signature would cost them around 32m euros and at the moment talks are ongoing with just agreements over a few bonuses left before the transfer can be completed.

    Good player. Dont know whats in Arsenal’s plans but yeah Sanches will help us a lot especially now that Thomas Partey ” the mainstay in midfield who needs a partner” has suffered his nth injury. But then again we hardly know what happens behind the scenes so…
    PS- just a humorous take on the overhyping of Thomas Partey who looks like an average purchase at the moment.

      Sanchez started 49 league games and missed 58 league games due to injury in the past five seasons.

      A simple break-down of Sanchez contribution to earn himself a league champions medal at Portugal, Germany and France.

      (No of starts / Goals / Assists / Minutes played / Games missed)
      15/16 – 22 / 2 / 1 / 1905 / Nil (Champion – Portugal)
      16/17 – 6 / 0 / 0 / 615 / 5 (Champion – Germany)
      17/18 – 9 / 0 / 0 / 703 / 25 (Relegated – EPL)
      18/19 – 4 / 1 / 1 / 567 / 2 (Champion – Germany)
      19/20 – 16 / 3 / 1 / 1482 / 12 (4th – France)
      20/21 – 14 / 1 / 3 / 1271 / 14 (Champion – France)

      Excluding his time at Portugal, his contributions for three league champions medal were 2 goals and 4 assists in 24 starts from a possible 106 league games.

      Still believe Sanchez is worth investing 32 mils to cover for the injured Partey?

    The 23 year old fits the profile of the new Arsenal.
    Talented, experienced, proven, young and at 32 mill is half the price of Madison.
    But why would he come to 8th placed Arsenal
    and not Juve to play with Ronaldo?
    Maybe he wants to play along side Xhaka, Elneny and Portuguese speaking Willian?

      Sanchez can earn himself a Champions League worthy salary at Arsenal without having to play those Champions League games.
