Arsenal agree personal terms with Serie A defender
Arsenal have reportedly finalised personal terms with Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani as they seek to secure his services before tomorrow's transfer deadline.
The Italy international has been regularly linked with the Gunners in the past few weeks and reputed journalist Alfredo Pedulla has now revealed that the centre-back has agreed on a £3.68m contract with the north London side.
It is added that the Gunners are likely to propose a two-year loan deal for the 25-year-old but the move remains complex with the Bianconeri said to demand a compulsory £36.8m buy option inserted.
Aside from Rugani, Unai Emery's side have also been linked with a big-money move for RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano and they are currently planning a renewed bid after their opening £55m offer was rejected.
Elsewhere, the club are deemed to be eyeing a loan move for Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho but that may only happen, if they turn down the opportunity to land Rugani from the Bianconeri.
Arsenal are permitted to make only two loan signings for the summer as part of the Premier League rules and they have already landed midfielder Dani Ceballos on a temporary basis from Real Madrid.
