Arsenal target fresh bid for Daniele Rugani with Juventus star keen for January transfer

Rugani is yet to feature for Juventus this season with Maurizio Sarri preferring the partnership of Leonardo Bonucci and Matthias de Ligt while Giorgio Chiellini is out injured.

Even Merih Demiral has seemingly moved ahead of Rugani in the pecking order having played one match so far.

And the Italian is reportedly ready to push through an exit in January, putting Arsenal on red alert to make a move in the New Year.

Luiz has been a regular in the Arsenal defence this season, starting all-but one Premier League match alongside Sokratis.

But the pair have been far from convincing through the opening 10 league games, keeping just two clean sheets.

Arsenal return to action this evening in the Carabao Cup fourth round when they take on Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp has already admitted he will stick with youth in the competition, and Unai Emery is likely to follow in the same suit.

Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli are both expected to start while Bukayo Saka, Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also feature.
