Arsenal are reportedly set for talks with Juventus on Wednesday in order to try and find an agreement for defender Daniele Rugani.

The Gunners are certainly in need of bolstering their options at the back after struggling with such a porous backline last season.

Unai Emery saw his side concede 51 goals in 38 Premier League games, giving them the second worst defensive record of the top nine sides in the standings.

William Saliba was signed from Saint Etienne, but he has returned to France on a season-long loan deal as part of that agreement, and so while he may be considered a long-term solution, he won’t be at Emery’s disposal this year to fix that problem.

In turn, Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla reported on Tuesday that Arsenal had reached an agreement on personal terms with Rugani, and now it would be down to the two clubs to secure a deal.
