​Arsenal willing to meet Sassuolo asking price for Juventus target Locatelli

Arsenal are pulling out all the stops to convince Manuel Locatelli to sign for the club this summer.

The Italian Euro 2020 star is a key target for Italian giants Juventus, but they are struggling to agree a fee with Sassualo for his signature.

Locatelli would prefer to move to Juve, as he is settled in Italy.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are very serious about Locatelli and would pay the €40 million euros Sassuolo want for his signature.

He wrote on Twitter: "Juventus are always leading the race for Locatelli - new meeting soon with Sassuolo, Manuel is still pushing to join Juve.

"Arsenal's stance: they'd be prepared to pay Sassuolo price tag [€40m]… but #AFC only want to sign players happy and 100 per cent convinced to join the club."
