Daniele Rugani & Juventus
Juventus have transformed their squad this summer.
The Bianconeri now have Maurizio Sarri at the helm, while they’ve signed the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Matthijs de Ligt.
As for the outgoings, Everton have signed Moise Kean, while the futures of Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain remain up in the air.
At the back, Daniele Rugani has been linked with a move away from Turin.
Rugani, 25, is under contract in Turin until 2023, having only recently signed a contract extension in March.
However, last season, Rugani only made 15 Serie A appearances for Juve.
Wolves bid £30m
On Monday, Gazzetta dello Sport contributor Nicolo Schira revealed that Wolves were gearing up for a Rugani bid.

Will Arsenal up their offer for Rugani?
The Times report the following:
Arsenal’s hopes of signing Daniele Rugani have been hit by Wolverhampton Wanderers making a £30 million offer for the Juventus centre back.
The 25-year-old has been told that he can leave the Italian club, who rejected Arsenal’s offer of a two-year loan. Arsenal have been encouraged to change their terms.
Laurent Koscielny’s €5m transfer to Bordeaux
