According to the Daily Mail, Wolves are rivalling Arsenal for the signing Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani with the West Midlands club prepared to offer £30m in order to beat them to his signature. The news has left many fans at Molineux discussing the possible coup.
It seems as if Rugani has slipped down the pecking order at the Italian giants after new boss Maurizio Sarri signed Matthijs de Ligt for €75m (£69m) from Ajax earlier this summer.
The Mail also state that the player’s preference would be a move to Unai Emery’s Gunners even with both sides competing in the Europa League this season.
A number of fans at Wolves took to social media to share their thoughts on the potential arrival.
One supporter said ‘what a signing this would be’ which was reinforced by another’s view that he looks a great player so he hopes the club get him.
Others were quite cynical suggesting that the club were being used as bait with one fan believing it is the agent’s doing in order to force Arsenal into a decision.
Some labelled the potential move as a decent but it wouldn’t be as exciting as signing Ruben Dias whilst once called it ‘awesome.’
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Let's hope we get him looks a great player

So we've offered £30m for Rugani, but he wants to join Arsenal. Arsenal want loan-to-buy, but Juventus want it straight up. Basically the player's agent is leaking our interest to media to push Arsenal into making a decision. I'd love him, but can't see it happening. #wwfc

Rugani will go Arsenal. We’re probably being used as bait.

It’s a big IF but IF we got both or one of Lemina or Rugani then I’ll be happy #wwfc
