Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has revealed he does not know if he will be in Turin next season, alerting Manchester City and Arsenal.

Chiellini, 25, is contracted to Juve until 2013 but the club had a poor season and finished in seventh place, outside the European places.

Without the lure of Champions League football, Juve will find it harder to attract top players but Chiellini has stressed the need for wholesale changes.

Chiellini told Sky Italia: “Will I stay at Juventus? I don’t know yet, I have not talked with anyone. I think yes, if they want me.

“I also want to see what the ideas are of the new club leaders in terms of team and players.

“We need important reinforcements in all roles and a champion that makes a difference – Ribery could give us the change of pace that is now missing.

“Then we will at the end of the market how the team will be but it won’t be easy to compete with Inter Milan immediately,” he said.

The Gunners have already been heavily linked with Chiellini’s team-mates Gianluigi Buffon and Felipe Melo as they prepare for life without captain Cesc Fabregas.

City will most likely have an open chequebook and are targeting the Premier League title next term and Chiellini would emphasise those ambitions.
