Arsenal have made an enquiry for Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Italian journalist claims that the Swedish international is a player that the Gunners are interested in signing ahead of the January transfer window.
Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the story. Some believe Kulusevski would be an excellent addition to the squad, while others don’t know a lot about him:

Kulusevski was signed by Juve for €44m (£37m) back in 2019 but, despite being a regular starter last campaign, he has struggled for minutes under manager Max Allegri this season.
The 21-year-old is usually deployed on the right-wing, cutting in onto his strong left-foot and, if the interest is genuine, it would probably mean that Nicolas Pepe’s days at the Emirates are numbered.
Di Marzio doesn’t go into great detail about whether Juventus would be open to selling Kulusevski, though, but the Swede is unlikely to be cheap if he is available.
