GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS
Juventus have reportedly beaten Arsenal in the race to prise Italy midfielder Manuel Locatelli away from Sassuolo.
Nicola Schira states that Locatelli has already agreed personal terms with Juve, with the two clubs hopeful a deal can be reached within the next 48 hours.
It has also been said that the player will pen a contract in Turin until 2026 where he will earn £2.5m-a-year.
Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsey’s agent has shot down talk of a return to Arsenal this summer.
The Wales and Juventus playmaker, who left the Emirates in 2019 when his contract expired, has been linked with a second Gunners stint after two injury-hit seasons in Italy.
But Ramsey’s representative David Baldwin cooled talk of the 30-year-old midfielder making a Premier League comeback to North London or beyond.
Responding to a tweet from an Arsenal fan account, Baldwin tweeted: “I’m sorry but can you stop making things up please. There is not a shred of truth in your tweet.”
Finally, Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac is reportedly being chased by Lazio and Fenerbahce amid uncertainty over his future.
Football London claims the left-back is set for an immediate exit after returning from a loan spell at Schalke.
Olympiacos are also in the running, having signed Sokratis from Arsenal in January.
But Fenerbahce could be Kolasinac’s preferred destination, as it would see him reunited with pal Mesut Ozil.
