Posted on September 30, 2015 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani has welcomed interest from Premier League giants Arsenal, according to a source close to the Italian defender.

The 21-year-old caught the eye of quite a few sides with some outstanding performances during a loan spell with Empoli last season, and he has since returned to Turin.

However, having failed to make a single appearance in the first six league games, Rugani is being heavily linked with a move away from the club.

Reports in Italy are suggesting that Arsenal have taken a keen interest in the talented footballer, with the Gunners reportedly even submitting an official proposal this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to offer German playmaker Mesut Ozil a contract extension, as they do not want his current deal to run into the last two years. The 26-year-olds current deal runs out in 2018.

Ozil arrived in 2013 from Real Madrid for a club-record fee of £42.4million, but has only impressed in fits-and-starts. The Germany international enjoyed a decent finish to last season, but has enjoyed a slow start to this campaign, as have many of his teammates.

His lethargic style of play often marks him out as one of the Gunners most ineffective players, despite his undoubted quality and vision on the ball.

Arsenal supporters are furious with manager Arsene Wenger this season after being misled about Danny Welbeck’s recovery from his ongoing injury. The long-serving coach only revealed the extent of the striker’s problems after the summer transfer window had closed, despite having the information long before.

Welbeck hadn’t played for the Londoners since the end of April, and was due to return after the recent international break, but he’s now been ruled out until Christmas after suffering a setback in his recovery. Fans aren’t convinced they were ever told the truth about Welbeck from the start, given he was expected to return at the end of last season.
