The Gunners are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
The former Sassuolo man will add a new dimension to Arsenal’s midfield.
According to the report, “Arsenal are reportedly re-igniting their interest in Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli. The Italy international snubbed a switch to the Gunners over the summer. Locatelli has since fallen out of favour with Juve boss Max Allegri. Italian outlet Calciomercato says Arsenal are looking at recruiting the Euro 2020 winner. Mikel Arteta was desperate to sign another midfielder during the transfer window but ultimately failed in doing so. Locatelli could be an option for the Spaniard once the January transfer window opens.”
