Juventus continue to pursue Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, it has been claimed.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Juve boss Antonio Conte is keen on Walcott, along with Villarreal's Jefferson Montero, who is seen as a cheaper option.
It has previously been reported that Conte sees Walcott as a superior alternative to Milos Krasic, who has been linked with a January move to Arsenal.
The Serbian midfielder does not fit into the system adopted by Conte, and a potential swap deal with Arsenal for Walcott has been mooted in the Italian press.
Arsenal, though, are ready to enter into negotiations with Walcott regarding a new contract. The 22-year-old's current deal expires in 2013, but the Gunners are reluctant to let it run into a final year.
Arsenal have already managed to tie Tomas Vermaelen down to new long-term contract, and the hope is that Walcott will soon follow suit.
However, the main concern for Arsene Wenger is still the future of Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.
The Dutchman, like Walcott, has over 18 months left on his contract, but could allegedly be tempted to quit north London for mega-rich Manchester City.
