Juventus believe they can tempt Arsenal captain Robin van Persie to leave north London, after the Serie A champions sent club legend Pavel Nedved to Holland's Euro 2012 training camp to hold talks with the striker.

According to the Daily Mail, the Italian giants have identified the 28-year-old Dutchman as their stellar signing, and will do everything in their power to bring him to Turin this summer.

Reports in Italy suggest Juventus have put together a £75million transfer package that includes a £25million fee to Arsenal, with wages of around £180,000-a-week.

The Gunners skipper is set to make a decision on his future after the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine, with speculation rife that he will quit the Emirates Stadium, as talks continue to stall over the club's offer of a new contract.

Van Persie still has 12 months to run on his existing deal, but Arsene Wenger has offered his influential forward a bumper three-year extension worth around £130,000-a-week, with an additional £5million signing on fee.

Manchester City are also monitoring the Dutchman's situation, having been heavily linked with a move for the Premier League's leading marksman last season. But, Roberto Mancini will first need to offload the likes of Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor, to free up room on his Etihad wage bill.
