Bentancur and Arthur issues with Aston Villa and Arsenal, Juventus ready to loan Kulusevski

by | Jan 26, 2022 17:55

While negotiations continue with Aston Villa for Rodrigo Bentancur and Arsenal for Arthur, Juventus open to loaning out Dejan Kulusevski, but the Swede doesn’t want Everton.

The Bianconeri are working on cutting down the squad after picking up Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina for €67m plus €8m in bonuses.

A deal has reportedly been done with Cagliari to take Uruguay international Nahitan Nandez on loan with option to buy.

However, they need to clear out someone from their midfield first and those are proving difficult to shift.

The latest reports from Italy suggest Aston Villa are not prepared to meet the €20-25m asking price for Bentancur, so negotiations are ‘very complicated.’

Arthur won’t be allowed to leave on a six-month loan, as Arsenal would either need to take the Brazilian for 18 months or commit to an obligation to buy.

The change today is that Kulusevski could now be allowed to leave Turin on loan, whereas before Juventus wanted only a sale for circa €35m.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport writer Luca Bianchin, Everton have shown an interest in Kulusevski, but the Sweden international is not eager on that particular transfer, especially as they still don’t have a manager after sacking Rafa Benitez.

    Juve has unwanted army crisis

    Nandez is even worse than Bentancur Arthur and Kulusevski, and older too, but he’s going to replace all three of them? Doesn’t make any sense. No way that Arthur or Kulusevski are leaving in January.

    I agree on nandez…if true that is just lazy work and scouting. Yes you have budgetary constraints but seriously.

    Not sure where the Nandez hate comes from, he’s a good player with a lot of versatility.


    Rubentus chasing another target of Inter.

    Do they even have a scouting network? Oh yes, Kaio Jorge

    Win one title in eleven years and @the clown forgets the decades of bad Inter deals. Worst run club before Marotta fixed it.
