Arsenal are to go up against Manchester City for Moise Kean in the January window according to a report from Italy but the player is most likely to sign a new deal with Juventus, and it gets even dodgier when you realise where they got their information from.

True to the circular reporting that we see these days, the site, which delivers only news about Juve, got their information from TalkSPORT.

The player dubbed the ‘new Balotelli’ (woop woop) has been watched a few times by Arsenal (and other clubs) but the main view coming from Italy (from sites that don’t get their reports from the UK, who probably get them from Italy, who get them from England etc) is that the player will remain in Turin and sign a new deal to keep him at the club long-term.

One of many stumbling blocks with this player is that he is represented by Mino Raiola, the man responsible for getting that stupid fee from Manchester United for Paul Pogba.

Although Raiola says that the player can become a ‘big star’ at Juventus, there’s no denying that he’s stoking the fires for a future transfer.

With Manchester City also linked with the player, Raiola is doing his job well.

“Kean is the name to watch in 2017,” the Italian insisted“and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent.”

“He is only 16 years old, but his determination is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.

“Juve have done so much and are light years ahead of the rest. They are a unique phenomenon in Italy – it’s a nation of naysayers.

“This is the best-organised club and it’s no coincidence that for five years they’ve dominated Serie A. 

“At Juve they all know what they have to do and they do it well.”

He turns 17 in February.
