Locatelli turns out to be a prime target for Juventus.
The Italian midfielder has been impressive in Serie A over the last two seasons. He was equally important to the Italian national team in the European Championship, where Robert Mancini’s men successfully lifted the title.
Juventus remain keen on the 23-year-old after it has been reported recently the Old Lady are set for transfer talks with an improved offer in the coming days.
He also added that Juve are in pole position to sign Locatelli while confirming interest from an anonymous Premier League club.
Carnevali said: “Tomorrow, we’ll have direct contact with Juventus for Locatelli. He wants to join Juve.
“We’d be happy to sell Manuel (Locatelli) to Juve… but they need to pay the right fee.
“Arsenal made a bid to sign him, and also, a new English club is now in the race.”
The Gunners have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Locatelli as the Old Lady are likely to sign him this summer.
It could be due to the North Londoners’ transition phase and their absence in the Champions League.
Elsewhere, Juve manager Max Allegri wants to make Locatelli a key component in the midfield from next season.
