Italian duo set for exit in €16m Arsenal playmaker chase

Juventus are reportedly ready to continue their pursuit of Andrey Arshavin.

The Arsenal ace has been improved at the Emirates in recent months after a slow start to the season, with the Russian international skipper becoming an influential part of the side due to injuries.

Serie 'A' side Juventus were reportedly first interested in signing the player back in January, but player agent Dennis Lachter played down the reports when talking to

"It's difficult for me to comment on certain items because he is a player who still has two-and-half-years on his contract with Arsenal and there are no formal offers. I think it's just speculation. Juventus could have taken Arshavin two-and-a-half years ago, but they didn't want to."

However, sources in Italy now claim Lachter has been in contact with the bianconeri over a possible summer move for the 29-year-old.

It's thought that the Gunners' will combat this with a new contract offer for the player at the Emirates, and Arsene Wenger is thought to be keen on keeping the player in north London.


However, an offer in the region of €16 million may be enough to prize the player away from Arsenal, according to reports on tribalfootball.

The legendary Italian outfit will also give up their efforts to sign Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri, currently on loan at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino, and turn all their transfer attentions to the permanent signing of the Arsenal playmaker.
