Man United and Arsenal set to battle it out for defensive wonderkid

Manchester United and Arsenal are leading the chase to sign Daniele Rugani from Juventus in January, TalkSport claims.

The 21 year-old was a first-team regular on loan with Serie A side Empoli over the past two seasons, but is yet to appear in the league for Juventus on returning to his parent club.

He impressed so much with the Azzurri side that he was called up to the senior Italy squad, although was left on the bench for the two matches in 2014.

Rugani’s only competitive appearance in the first-team has come in the Champions League, but having come off the bench in the 89th minute, we will discount that as enough to keep the young star happy.

The player’s agent recently hinted at a possible move to the Premier League, amidst interest from Arsenal, and now Manchester United are said to be keen on rivalling the North-London side for his signature.

Fiorentina are also believed to be keen on his signature, and are believed to be monitoring his situation.
