Juventus are reportedly considering making a January bid for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

According to Tuttosport, Juve boss Antonio Conte sees the England international as a superior alternative to Milos Krasic, who is likely to be sold in January.

Arsenal are currently in talks with Walcott regarding a new contract and Arsene Wenger has no intention of letting the 22-year-old leave the Emirates Stadium.

Conte, though, is realistic over his prospects of signing the England international and does not expect Juve will be able to lure him away from Arsenal.


"We could not get Walcott, Nani or Tevez because of the finances involved," he explained. "Clubs in Italy cannot afford such prices, so we focused on young players.

"But if we can work something out with our budget, then maybe there is a possibility."

Walcott, meanwhile, will miss Arsenal's Champions League encounter with Olympiacos on Wednesday evening.
