Arsenal transfer target Paul Pogba wants a £3m-a-year contract to stay at Juventus, according to reports in Italy.

The Gunners reportedly lodged a £17m offer for the French midfielder towards the end of the summer window, but their advances were rebuffed.

Pogba signed for the Italian champions on a free transfer in the summer of 2012 after leaving Manchester United – and Portuguese newspaper A Bola claims he agreed a £500,000-a-year deal upon joining.

But after a stellar debut campaign in the first-team, Pogba wants improved terms to extend his stay in Turin. Juventus are reportedly willing to double his salary to £1m-a-year but Pogba is holding out for £3m.

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, is reportedly demanding at least £3m-a-year amid interest in his player from the likes of Arsenal and Real Madrid.

Pogba left Manchester United after falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson, but he’s proven to be a huge hit in Italy, and has already won his first full France cap.

Arsenal were linked with his services in August, but eventually swooped for Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil in a Gunners club record £42.5m deal on deadline day.
