Breaking: Rodrigo Bentacur Agrees personal terms with Arsenal

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing up Juventus ace Rodrigo Bentancur following his performances for Uruguay at the World Cup.

The Gunners are in the midst of a spending spree which has seen Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira rock up at the Emirates.

And while Unai Emery kept his cards close to his chest when asked about any other potential deals, Gunners chiefs are working hard behind the scenes.

The North Londoners are believed to have a number of midfielders in their sights and they are likely to push ahead with a move if Aaron Ramsey does not sign a new contract.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal like the look of Uruguay international Bentancur.

Bentancur made his mark as Oscar Tabarez’s side reached the quarter-final stage in Russia.

And that came after he had offered glimpses of his quality at Juventus last season.

Arsenal are not alone in tracking Bentancur, who started his career in Argentina with Boca Juniors.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim Barcelona have eyes on the rapidly-developing 21-year-old as well.

Other unnamed clubs are said to be interested in snapping up Bentancur off the back of his World Cup showings.

Although Juventus are under no pressure to strike a deal for the Uruguayan ace.

Bentancur is tied down at the Allianz Stadium until the summer of 2022, signing a five-year contract last year.

And the Agnelli family’s financing of Cristiano Ronaldo’s move means they do not have to raise funds.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have also been linked with Aleksandr Golovin, Ever Banega, Steven Nzonzi and Andre Gomes.
