Arsenal approach for duo rejected by club and players – Man…

first_imgArsenal recently made a move to try and sign Alessandro Bastoni from Inter Milan but received a blank refusal from both the club and the player. The young defender has emerged as one of the hottest talents in Europe this season having worked his way into Antonio Conte’s Inter side.Naturally, his performances, which have belied his young age and relative lack of experience, have garnered attention from around Europe, with several big sides, such as Manchester City, being linked.Pep Guardiola’s side have been among the names mentioned in the past, with the belief being the Spanish manager had identified the young Italian as the perfect man to partner Aymeric Laporte in the heart of his defence.Embed from Getty ImagesInter have no intention of selling one of their prized assets, though, and that recently saw them turn down an approach from Arsenal.FC Inter News explain the Gunners ‘recently tried to knock’ for the young defender, having already come forward with an offer for teammate Nicolò Barella.Their interest in Bastoni is well established, as is Manchester City’s, with Guardiola’s side having watching him live on two occasions in the winter.Arsenal’s attempts to sign the defender and Barella were stonewalled, though, as they received ‘no opening’ from either the club or the players’ entourage.Inter consider Bastoni as unsellable and are now readying a new five-year deal that will see him increase his wages to €1.5m a year with the potential for more via bonuses.They already discussed this with his agent Tullio Tinti in January, and the deal will be ‘ratified’ in the coming weeks, meaning Arsenal and Manchester City will both have to turn their attention elsewhere in their hunt for reinforcements this summer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayManuka FeedMix a Little Salt and Olive Oil and Say Goodbye to Joint PainManuka FeedUndoNovelodgeThe Best Cosplays We’ve Ever SeenNovelodgeUndoBeach RaiderThe Riskiest Dresses On The Red Carpet In 2019Beach RaiderUndoTottenham’s ‘senior managers’ personally involved – Levy in talks to get signing done – Sport WitnessUndoLeeds United ‘rekindle the dream’ of signing – Radrizzani ‘doesn’t seem willing’ to pay up – Sport WitnessUndo”I hope he’ll find his place in the world” – Colombia’s sports psychologist comments on James Rodriguez’s Everton switch – Sport WitnessUndoTottenham have ‘actually already asked’ about signing – Insistence Spurs keen on transfer – Sport WitnessUndoClub preparing offer for Aston Villa player – Could arrive by end of month – Sport WitnessUndoNew Leicester man reveals the ‘big role’ Brendan Rodgers played in bringing him to club – Sport WitnessUndolast_img
