Deal Agreed: Serie A €12m-rated midfielder linked with surprise switch to Arsenal
Arsenal are interested in Nicolo Rovella and are willing to approach him. U21 Italy international has excelled during his loan spell at Monza, but Juventus are uninterested in a sale. Nicolo’s displays at Monza have caught the attention of many sides, including the PL.
Rovella has played close to 100 first-team matches and has all the ingredients to succeed at a top team. The Old Lady acquired him in the summer of 2021, paying a hefty sum of €26m before loaning him back to Genoa to continue the 20-year-old midfielder’s development.
They wanted him to gain more experience and agreed on another temporary deal, this time to Monza, where the Italian midfielder has been fantastic this campaign. The Spanish manager is in the market for midfield options and bringing someone he can develop into a bonafide star in north London.
The defensive midfield position is a bit problematic for Arsenal considering they need a viable cover for Partey. The Ghanaian midfielder has been impressive under Mikel Arteta, although his injury record tends to hurt the team when he remains absent.
One of Mikel Arteta’s priorities is to bring a cover for Partey as the London giants continue to explore options in the market. Palmeiras’ Danilo is a target in January, but Arteta might look at other ideas, including Rovella. As for Rovella, he-old could evaluate all options at the end of the season. Nicolo would be craving to become a regular part of Juventus.
