The Gunners have been strongly linked with Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain, but according to fresh reports, Arsene Wenger has held talks with Giovinco and also Andre-Pierre Gignac from French side Marseille.

Free transfers

Both Gignac and Giovinco could become free agents at the end of this season due to and this could allow Wenger to hold formal talks with them as soon as January due to the Bosman ruling.

Due to the strikers playing for overseas clubs, Arsenal can start talks in the new year and can offer them contracts ahead of a possible move in the summer.

Main target

Despite monitoring Giovinco's situation in Turin, it's believed that Gignac is Wenger's main target after the 28-year-old netted 12 goals in just nine appearances so far this season.

The French international is reportedly ready to leave France and would jump at the chance to join the Emirates Stadium, especially with the French contingent already at the club.

Back-up plan

However, if Wenger fails in his pursuit for Gignac, he will turn to Juventus and will enquire about Giovinco, who usually prefers to play just behind the main striker.

The Italian international is struggling to break into Juve's first-team due to their host of talent in the attacking department, and with his contract set to expire, he could be keen for a summer switch.

The 27-year-old has fallen behind the likes of Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata at Juve and could be ready to let his contract expire in order to find regular first-team football.
