Arsenal are going all out to convince Manuel Locatelli to sign for them this summer.
Locatelli who starred during the Euro 2020 is a primary target for Italian giants Juventus, but they are battling 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.”
