Arsenal are being linked with a shock January move for former Italian international striker Luca Toni.

The Juventus hitman, who has enjoyed spells with 11 different clubs during his seventeen-year career, joined the bianconeri in January on a free transfer from Genoa.

However, media sources in Turin claim the player could make his first venture into English football in the New Year, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger considering a move for the 34-year-old.

The reports go on to claim the 34-year-old could be cut loose from the Juventus Stadium on a free transfer, with the Old Lady looking take the player's sizable wages from their books in a move that would provide the Gunners with a chance to add the player for nothing.

Wenger bolstered his attacking ranks this summer with the arrivals of Park Chu-Young and Gervinho at the Emirates, whilst Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun also bolstered the Arsenal midfield in the transfer window.


However, the worst start to a league season in over 50 years has left the Frenchman once again looking towards the transfer market in January, with the Arsenal boss hoping to add to the club's firepower in an effort to sustain a top four challenge.

The veteran is also not cup-tied for the Champions League after Juventus failed to qualify for the tournament last term, finishing seventh in Serie 'A', meaning Arsenal would be able to use the 47-cap international in Europe as well as England.
