Leicester lead Rugani chase

Juventus are reportedly putting €25m-rated Daniele Rugani on the market, with Leicester City and Arsenal the favourites ahead of Milan.

The 25-year-old centre-back has made only three competitive appearances for Juve this season and dropped to the bottom of the pecking order, behind Merih Demiral.

With Giorgio Chiellini expected back in training at the end of this month after ACL surgery, it gives Rugani even less chance of playing time in Turin.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Calciomercato.com and more, Leicester City are the favourites to snap up the Italy international for €20-25m.

There could even be a loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season.

Arsenal are also interested in the Premier League, while Milan have long been linked with Rugani as a partner for Alessio Romagnoli.

Among the reasons for Rugani’s sale rather than Demiral, the Italian’s salary is €3.5m per year compared to just €1.8m for the Turk.
