Juve lose out on Manolas

Juventus look set to miss out on Kostas Manolas this summer, with Arsenal reportedly agreeing a fee with Olympiacos.

The Bianconeri were seen as in continued negotiations with the Greek club for their international centre-back.

However, after indications last week of interest from clubs in England, rumours were that Juve were considering other targets amid difficulties in agreeing terms with Olympiacos.

That speculation looks accurate as today reports from Britain are that Arsenal have the advantage now after apparently agreeing a fee of around €11m for the 23-year-old.

The Independent lead suggestions that the defender has even undergone medical tests with the Gunners ahead of completing the transfer to England.
