Juventus 'unwilling to sell defender Daniele Rugani'

The agent of Juventus defender Daniele Rugani says that the club are unwilling to sell him.

Juventus are unwilling to sell young defender Daniele Rugani, according to the player's agent.

The 21-year-old has been linked with Arsenal and Napoli, but his representative Davide Torchia has now confirmed that the Old Lady will not entertain offers.

"I've never been contacted officially by Napoli, as is right and respectful of everyone. They spoke with Juventus first," Torchia told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

"But the club always told me that they believed in the youngster and that if somebody in their starting defence had some trouble, he could cut out his own space.

"They told me they wouldn't give him away to anyone and I have to say they've been true to their word."

Rugani earned plaudits during his time at Empoli, drawing comparisons to legendary Italian defenders including Alessandro Nesta and Fabio Cannavaro.
