Juventus are prepared to offer Arsenal star Theo Walcott a £90,000-a-week contract to lure the England international to Italy, according to talkSPORT.

The Serie 'A' champions are hopeful they can persuade Walcott to leave Arsenal in January. The winger has so far refused to sign a new deal at the club, and the Gunners may look to cash in on Walcott, rather than risk losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger defiantly maintains that Walcott will not be sold in January, but the report suggests the Arsenal boss could go back on that declaration, and offload the wide-man in the New Year.

In recent days, Manchester United have also been linked with the England international, who is set to leaves the Emirates Stadium.

He would not be the first big name to depart. Samir Nasri, Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie have all quit the Gunners in recent transfer windows, Van Persie opting to join United over Juventus in the summer, according to reports.

But the Italian giants are keen to beat the Premier League leaders to the signing of Walcott, and are ready to sanction a deal worth £90,000-a-week to persuade the attacker to join.

Juventus are also reportedly ready to guarantee Walcott the position he so desperately wants - a starting place up front.

TalkSPORT report a bid in the region of £8m could be enough to tempt Arsenal to sell Walcott next month, as the January transfer window represents the last time the Gunners can receive a transfer fee for Walcott.
