Napoli have made an official offer to sign Juventus defender Daniele Rugani with Arsenal set to follow, Calciomercato.it has revealed.
The Partenopei have offered £25million to secure the services of the young defender.
They are after a new defender after it has been confirmed that centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly will leave the club in the summer.
The Bianconeri have rejected the offer but Napoli are expected to make a new offer in the coming days.
And according to the article, the Gunners are looking to make an offer of their own as they want to strengthen their defensive department.
Last week, agent Davide Torchia has rubbished rumours linking the youngster with a move away from Juventus: "Daniele to leave if Juventus sign Benatia? No way, he will stay in Turin."
