Arsenal and Manchester United target Matteo Darmian is on the verge of joining Bayern Munich from Torino, it has been claimed.

The 25-year-old Italian international has grabbed headlines this summer as a number of top clubs are involved in a mad scramble to acquire his signature.

Arsenal and Manchester United have maintained a long term interest in the full-back and were hoping to take him to England this summer but the German powerhouses seemed to have beaten them to the post.

German champions Bayern Munich have been on his trail and it has been claimed that they are on the verge of clinching Darmian’s signature.

According to Italian daily Tuttosport, the Bavarians are close to agreeing a deal worth €16m plus add-ons with Torino for the transfer of the Italian right-back.


While Torino were keen to hold on to Darmian, the involvement of some of the big names of European football made their job difficult and it seems that they are on the verge of ratifying the 25-year-old’s move to the Allianz Arena.

Other than enjoying an impressive season with Torino, Darmian has also established himself in the Italian national team and has earned 11 caps for the Azzurri.
