Arsenal target Juan Camilo Zuniga is reportedly set to make a decision on his Napoli future within the next week, with the Colombia international out of contract at the end of the season.

According to talkSPORT, the versatile wideman has been offered a four-year deal by the Serie A club, but is delaying making a decision on with a number of prominent clubs credited with interest in his signature.

Arsenal, it is claimed, are joined in their pursuit of Zuniga by Juventus and Barcelona, all of whom will be able to talk directly to the player when he enters into the final six months of his contract with Napoli.

Napoli, though, still retain hope of convincing the 27-year-old to stay with the club, and will ensure his new contract comes with a £17 million release clause in an attempt to keep the likes of Arsenal and Juve at bay.

The former Siena full-back could feature against his potential future employers this season after Arsenal and Napoli were drawn in the same group for the Champions League.

Arsenal will host Napoli at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday week having opened their campaign with a win over Marseille, while Rafael Benitez's side recorded an impressive victory against Borussia Dortmund.

The Gunners travel to Naples in December.
