The Gunners have been tracking the star following his impressive campaign in Serie A.

Boss Mikel Arteta is eager to strengthen his midfield with Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos heading for the exit door.

Now Goal claims Juventus are hoping to usurp the Premier League outfit as they ready an approach for Locatelli.

And the Bianconeri are readying an official approach to Sassuolo with a £26m offer and hope the inclusion of 19-year-old Romanian centre-back Dragusin will help them seal the deal.

Despite speculation over his future, Locatelli is refusing to comment on the transfer reports.

And ahead of his country’s clash with Wales today, he declared he would wait until the Euros are over before making a decision.

Locatelli said: “[The transfer rumours are] just talk. I will decide after the European Championship. There’s such an important competition to play in, and I’m only focused on this.

“I rely on what happens on the pitch, the real things, everything else is just gossip, it’s useless to talk about it.”

He had previously said: “It is normal to have rumours about the transfer market, but I will not let myself be influenced by them.

“It would be a waste of time to think about that, even though I know that after the Euros will have some decisions to make.

“I’ll decide my future after the Euros. I talked with Sassuolo board, we know what we’ve to do in July.”
