Arsenal boost as Juventus struggle to match Locatelli price

Arsenal have received a boost in their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli.

Juventus are struggling to produce the funds to meet Manuel Locatelli's asking price, says Sky Italia.

That could act as a boost to Arsenal's transfer hopes, as the Gunners have been tracking the Italy star since Euro 2020.

Juventus are not able to meet Sassuolo's demand of £34million for Locatelli.

The clubs have reportedly met on three different occasions to discuss the deal but have been unable to reach an agreement.

As a result, Juventus are believed to instead be keen on a two-year loan with an option to make the move permanent.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have bid for Locatelli, which has been confirmed by Sassuolo.

Also, Arsenal could benefit from the fact Sassuolo want to wrap up a move quickly as they want to reinvest in a replacement.
