Arsenal held talks with Juventus star's agent

Published Add your comment

Arsenal recently enquired about the situation of Juventus striker Sebastian Giovinco, according to the player's agent.

Claudio Pasqualin is quoted by the Metro as saying that the Gunners contacted him to find out more about his client's potential availability - but insists there is nothing more to report at this stage.

"We have had contact with Arsenal," Pasqualin revealed. "It was a request for information about his situation. There was nothing more [at the moment]."

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to bring the diminutive forward, who is 5ft 5in tall, to the Emirates Stadium this month as cover for the injured Nicklas Bendtner.

Giovinco, 26, has played a peripheral role for the Serie A champions this season, with Juventus boss Antonio Conte preferring the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in attack.

It's believed that Arsenal will initially attempt to take Giovinco to north London on a loan deal until the end of the season, allowing the Italy international some regular game time ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
