Arsenal have reportedly asked Juventus if they can have Daniele Rugani on a two-year loan only to be told ‘nope’.
On Monday, it was reported that Arsenal wanted to sign Daniele Rugani to replace Laurent Koscielny who looks set to leave and won’t play for Arsenal again.

Arsenal’s initial approach was for a loan deal but details were few and far between.
At the time of those UK reports, Italian media reported that Juventus had no intention of letting the 25-year-old leave this summer.
Now, another report from Italy claims that the Gunners asked for the player on loan for two seasons rather than just one as William Saliba cover until he arrives following his own loan spell.
However, ‘Juventus continues to reject the assaults for its defenders,’ writes TuttoJuve.
Rugani is under contract until 2023 and made 15 Serie A appearances last season and 20 overall in all competitions.
Considering we let them have Aaron Ramsey for free you think they’d be less dicky about the whole thing, really…
