Italian champions Juventus are still chasing Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain despite reports suggesting that he has already agreed terms with Premier League side Arsenal reports Sky Sports.

The Seria A team have made it clear that they need to improve in the attacking department and their attentions have been fully focused on trying to capture Argentinian Higuain, and despite Arsenal being clear favourites to sign the striker, Juve are not giving up the chase just yet.

Higuain's future has been hot-topic in recent weeks after he announced his intentions to leave Real Madrid and it was Juventus that was the favoured destination with bookmakers up until two days ago when reports suggested that Arsenal and Higuain have already agreed personal terms over a deal.

With these reports, Arsenal's odds of signing Higuain went down to as short as 1/3 with SkyBet, whilst Juve's went up to 9/2.

Juve's attentions have turned to Higuain since they couldn't make a breakthrough with Fiorentina over possibly signing their striker Stevan Jovetic and the club's general director now wants them to capture the Madrid player.

Giuseppe Marotta is still hopeful his club can sign Higuain and believes there can always be late twists in transfer sagas.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "Higuain? I do not want to say anything because there is still so much time left for things to happen."

If Juve fail to capture Higuain, they are also linked with Manchester City's Carlos Tevez as well as Jovetic, but Marotta didn't want to talk too much about certain individuals.

He added: "There is no hurry. They are both great players but they are also with great clubs, so it would not be right to discuss them.

"I do not want to create an illusion that things are already in motion."
