In this quest, Arsenal zeroed in on Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani.
Juventus have several options in the centre-back position, including new big-money signing Matthijs de Ligt, which means that Rugani may not game time at the club.
Arsenal signed Nicolas Pepe in a club record £72m deal from Ligue 1 side Lille last week to make the Ivory Coast worldwide the club's most-expensive signing.
But Juventus turned down the approach, with the Serie A champions reluctant to let the 25-year-old leave because they want to go into the season with five central defenders and there are concerns over the fitness of Giorgio Chiellini.

Neil Lennon has revealed that Celtic are preparing for a second bid from Arsenal for defender Kieran Tierney.
If Arsenal are able to secure the services of Tierney he would be Unai Emery's fifth signing of the summer window.
According to the latest reports, Arsenal is making serious moves to shore up the weaknesses in their defence and will be making one last concerted effort to sign Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney. The most recent bid by the Arsenal has apparently met the valuation, but the Scots did not agree with how the bid was structured and will only allow their star to leave if cash is offered upfront.
Normally these things tend to happen again so it would not surprise me, put it that way.
Tierney's future doesn't look particularly certain at the moment and a move to Arsenal seems to be well touted right now.
