Arsenal will make a bid of around £13m for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani in January, according to reports in Italy.

Calciomercato have reported that the Gunners will make a bid for the 21-year-old in the next transfer window.

The Gunners only brought in one player in the summer transfer window, goalkeeper Petr Cech in an £11m deal from Chelsea.

In Europe's top five leagues, the Gunners were the only team not to bring in an outfield player in this summer

Rugani has yet to represent Italy at senior international level, but has appeared for his country from Under-17 to Under-21.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Empoli, playing in 38 games for the side.
