Juventus have rejected a bid from Everton for Daniele Rugani, according to Calciomercato.com.

It has been reported by the Italian news outlet that Everton made an offer of €30 million (£25.5m) for Rugani.

The Italian champions, though, have turned down that offer, as they are not looking to sell the 21-year-old defender in the summer transfer window, according to the report.

Italian club Napoli and Premier League giants Arsenal have also been informed that Rugani is not for sale, according to Calciomercato.com.

Rugani is a talented young centre-back who has been on the books of Juventus since the summer of 2015, having spent the 2012-13 season on loan for their youth team.

The youngster failed to get much playing time for the Italian giants last season. The central defender made just 17 appearances in Serie A during the 2015-16 campaign, creating one chance in the process.

Rugani had a pass accuracy of 89% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won 22 headers, seven dribbles and 22 tackles.

In one Champions League appearance for Juventus during the 2015-16 season, the youngster had a pass accuracy of 83% and won one tackle.
