Arsenal transfers: Giorgio Chiellini rules out Premier League move

Juventus centre-half Giorgio Chiellini rules out move to the Premier League amid Arsenal reports

Giorgio Chiellini has ruled out a move to the Premier League after recent reports suggested Arsenal could make a move for the Juventus defender.

The Serie A champions have seen a number of key departures in recent weeks after their Champions League final disappointment, including Argentina international Carlos Tevez and experienced midfielder Andrea Pirlo.

If I had to have an experience abroad I would prefer to go to a completely different part of the world, perhaps the United States

Italy international Chiellini was touted as a potential defensive reinforcement for Arsene Wenger, who has already snapped up Petr Cech in an £11m deal from Chelsea earlier this month.

However, the towering Juve defender insisted that he is happy in Turin despite the attractive proposition of testing his talents in the Premier League.

“The Premier League is fascinating, but I’m fine where I am,” Chiellini told talkSPORT.

“If I had to have an experience abroad I would prefer to go to a completely different part of the world, perhaps the United States.”

Chiellini has been a cornerstone of Juve’s recent dominance of the Italian top-flight.

The 6ft 1ins defender has helped Juventus win four successive Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia.
