Premier League giants Arsenal are said to be considering a loan move for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani before the transfer window closes next week.

The Gunners will have to complete a deal for the Italian international before deadline day next week Thursday.

The interest of the Gunners was confirmed by the Daily Mirror.

Arsenal are keen on a loan move for the player.

Daniele Rugani is further down the pecking order in the centre back department at Juventus following the signings of Matthijs De Ligt and Merih Demiral.

Juventus signed De Ligt from Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam earlier this summer after a protracted transfer saga.

The Italian champions won the race to sign the highly-rated Dutch international star ahead of other European sides like Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Merih Demiral also became a Juventus player this summer following his move from fellow Italian Serie A outfit Sassuolo.

The Turkish defender had signed for Sassuolo during the winter transfer window.

Arsenal need a new centre back this summer following the poor defensive showings from the last campaign.

In addition, the Gunners are almost certain to lose the services of former skipper Laurent Koscielny hence the need for a centre back replacement.
