Rugani ‘thinking of leaving Juventus & is set to command a £22m transfer fee’

Reported Arsenal target Daniele Rugani is thinking of leaving Juventus and is set to command a £22million transfer fee this summer, according to Calciomercato.

The Gunners have struggled at the back this season and Mikel Arteta could potentially be looking to bolster his defence ahead of next season.

Rugani, meanwhile, has previously been linked with an exit from Juventus, but to his credit, has always opted to stay and fight for his place in the team.

However, with just three Serie A appearances all season and seven in all competitions in 2019-20, the 25-year-old is said to be considering his future.

Calciomercato claims that Rugani “isn’t considered the first choice” at Juve and is now evaluating “different projects where he can be a protagonist”.

The report also claims that the Bianconeri “will be looking to sell him for budgetary reasons”.

Juventus Defender, Rugani Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Juventus have confirmed that 25-year-old Centre-back defender Daniele Rugani has tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday night.

Rugani has been a fringe player for the reigning Serie A champions this season, making just seven appearances in all competitions.

The Italy international was on the bench for Juventus just days ago when the club beat Inter 2-0 behind closed doors.

Confirmation of Rugani’s condition comes after Serie A was put on hold until at least April with his club now committed to following proper quarantine protocol.

“The footballer Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Juventus said in a club statement.

“Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including the census of those who have had contact with him.”

Rugani began his career with Empoli in Serie B before joining Juventus in 2015 where he is currently contracted until June 2023.

The defender’s positive test comes in the wake of news that Juve superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has remained in his hometown of Madeira to limit the risk of getting coronavirus with Italy currently in lockdown.
