All You Need To Know About Arsenal New Target Manuel Locatelli

Current Premier League table-toppers , Arsenal is looking to add depth to their midfield and have turned to a former target, Manuel Locatelli to strengthen the squad.

Locatelli moved to the Juventus last summer on an initial two-year loan, with Juve having an obligation to then purchase the player for €25 million over three years with €12.5m in potential add-ons. This summer will see that obligation kick in – unless a suitor comes to prise the Euro 2020 winner away from his homeland.

Arsenal has previously had a £34m bid turned down for Locatelli during his Sassuolo days. The Italian moved from AC Milan after original promise, impressed under now-Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi and earned a move to Turin, working under Max Allegri, the manager who gave him his break to train with the first team at just 15 years old.

But Juventus have struggled this season, finding themselves way off the pace in Serie A and Allegri’s second spell at the Allianz Stadium may be cut short, should poor form continue. If the two-time European champions fail to qualify for the Champions League, Locatelli may be persuaded to seek pastures new.
