Emery could prove Arsenal right to prefer him to Allegri by beating him to Golovin

Arsenal are in competition with Juventus, managed by one-time reported target Max Allegri for the signature of breakout World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin, according to Italian outlet Tutto Sport.

What’s the story, then?

The report claims that Juventus are wary of potential advances for the Russian midfielder from the Emirates Stadium and have tried to jump ahead in the queue.

They go on to say that the Italian champions are in constant contact with CSKA Moscow over Golovin but that an 18m euro bid has been rejected as they hold out for 25m.

It also says that Golovin’s future will only be decided after the World Cup, which should give Arsenal ample time to hit back with a bid of their own.

Emery could land a major blow on Allegri

It does seem as if Allegri and Juventus are ahead in the race for Golovin but as there will still be fractions of the Arsenal fanbase who long for the Italian to be at the Emirates, this chase could present a chance to land a major blow.

If Emery, without the lure of Champions League football can convince one of the stars of the World Cup (so far) to join his Arsenal revolution over the club that Allegri chose to remain at, it would go a long way to enthusing Gunners fans about their prospects under the Spaniard.
