BBC: Arsenal Agrees 5-year-deal with Club over 23-year-old star

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.

Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, will not be moving to Premier League outfit Arsenal anytime soon.

The North Londoners are long-term admirers of the 23-year-old, who is still working on nailing down a spot in the first team.

However, the centre-back has seen his playing time increase over the past year and he is expected to get more minutes next season.

The 23-year-old’s agent, Davide Torchia, has explained how Juventus have no plans to let the Italy international go.

“It’s been a very positive season for Daniele,” Torchia told TuttoJuve.

“He’s played more than 1000 minutes in the league and made 26 appearances, including 25 as a starter.

“It’s a nice improvement compared to the previous season and there is space to be able to do better next year.

“At Juventus it’s not enough just to be a good defender, you always have to do more.

“Juventus have always considered him unsellable and have never considered selling him.

“The club are very satisfied, they have great respect for the lad and don’t want to deprive themselves of his football qualities.”
