The Italian media today has something to say about Arsenal’s chase for Juventus youngster Kenan Yıldız, and claim there’s competition from Manchester United and Liverpool.

Earlier this week, it had been claimed that the Gunners are willing to offer up to €40m in an attempt to beat the competition for his signing.

Now as Calcio In Pillole talks about Yıldız’s situation, they make it clear that Arsenal would need much more money to get the transfer done.

It’s said that Juventus have set a price of at least €60m for his sale. That means the Gunners’ offer would ‘almost certainly get returned to the sender’.

The Bianconeri are said to be focused on renewing Yıldız’s contract at the club. This work has been taking place for weeks, as even though his current deal expires in 2027, they want to have him better protected.

Besides needing €20m more to have a chance of a deal with Juventus, Arsenal also have to worry about the competition. The outlet points out that Manchester United and Liverpool both ‘tested the waters’ in recent weeks, so the Gunners may want to be more aggressive to beat their Premier League rivals in this race.
