Gunners weigh-up Del Piero move

Next Story

Arsenal are reportedly tracking Alessandro Del Piero who is set to leave Juventus after a 19-year career with the Old Lady.

The 37-year-old is ready to leave the Serie A club, however his club career doesn’t appear to be over.

Del Piero’s agent and brother Stefano Del Piero says his client has a firm idea what sort of club he’d fancy.

"There is no news at the moment but all the doors are open for a move away from Turin," he told

"There are no restrictions from our part. It all depends on what type of project a club has and what is exactly behind the proposal and the kind of football which would attract Alex, but the main interest is the project."

"I think that after 20 years with Juventus and having given his availability to the club to sign a new deal since last February, it is now very difficult to remain in Italy.

"We are not close to anything, but I think it will be hard to remain in Serie A."

With a deal for Lukas Podolski far from complete, Arsenal are likely to welcome the addition of Del Piero, who would add valuable experience to the club’s ranks.

In addition, such has been the onus on Robin van Persie to score goals this season; the Dutchman is likely to appreciate the signing, while it could also work as a carrot for the club’s top scorer to pen a new deal.

The Italian striker is likely to encounter a number of offers this summer, with big spending Paris St Germain another club who are understood to be interested.
