Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, a transfer window target for Arsenal, is reportedly set to end speculation about his future by signing a new contract with Juventus.
Pogba has been linked with a transfer away from Juventus after only one season in Turin, having flourished during his maiden campaign with the Serie A champions.
According to talkSPORT, however, the France international is set to end the interest of Arsenal by putting pen to paper on an improved contract with Juventus as a reward for his performance last term.
Pogba moved to Turin during the summer transfer window of last year in controversial circumstances, with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson accusing the player of being disrespectful towards the club as he forced a move away from Old Trafford.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been credited with interest in bringing the Manchester United academy graduate back to the Premier League as Arsene Wenger strives to recruit reinforcements.
The Gunners were reported to be considering a £17 million offer for the 20-year-old, but Wenger may now have to look elsewhere if he harbours a genuine desire to sign a midfielder before the transfer deadline.
