Wolves make bid for Arsenal target Rugani

Wolves have launched a bid for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.

The Daily Star says Wolves have made a bid for Juventus ace Daniel Rugani, taking the first steps over a proposed move.

It comes amid interest from Arsenal, who are desperate to bolster their backline.

With the ongoing speculation over David Luiz's future and Mikel Arteta's plans to axe Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi, the defence looks feeble at the Emirates.

Rugani has been a long-term target for the Gunners but have found themselves priced out in recent years.

However, his value has depreciated after a shoddy season as well as the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

After the signing of Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral, Rugani has been relegated to fifth-choice centre-back.

TuttoJuve says Wolves have made the first move for the Italy international.

They report that Nuno Espirito Santo has opened the bidding at €20m (£18m).
