Published Add your comment

Claudio Marchisio has been ever-present for Juventus in recent times making over 300 appearances, and helped the club to a domestic double and a run through to the Champions League final where they fell at the feet of Barcelona.

According to talkSPORT, negotiations between Marchisio and the Old Lady have slowed to renew his current deal, which reaches its climax at the end of next season - leading to speculation regarding the state of his future.

Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger would be set to move for the Italy international in the coming weeks if no agreement can be reached.

 "The ball is in the Old Lady's court, I don't think they'd let a player like him go. If we don't find an agreement, we'll look around.”

Marchisio is a pivotal player for the Old Lady having been there at the club his whole career, surely the Serie A champions wouldn’t let a player of his calibre slip from under their noses.
