Juventus and Arsenal race to sign Roma star

19 May at 22:05
Roma have already had a chaotic season and, to make matters worse, one of the Giallorossi's star players is in danger of leaving. Greek centre-back Kostas Manolas has been linked away from the capital for a few years now but, so far, he has not yet been tempted away. However, this could be about to change, as Il Messaggero writes, with both Premier League giants Arsenal and Serie A champions Juventus on the trail of the talented defender.

Manolas has a release clause in his contract that both clubs are reportedly prepared to meet and it will be a matter of who makes the most convincing offer to the Greek star. On one hand, a move to Arsenal would see Manolas line up alongside international partner Sokratis and play a major role in Arsenal's defence and likely playing many games.

At Juventus, however, Manolas may be forced into rotation more and would face a competitive starting line-up of defenders - and a new manager to contend with too.
