Arsenal set to miss out on Serie A star

Arsenal appear as if the are to set to miss out on the signing of Fabio Quagliarella, with Italian sources cited by the Daily Star reporting that the Italian's agent has flown to America to discuss a possible switch to Major League Soccer.

30-year-old Quagliarella joined current club Juventus from Serie A rivals Napoli during the summer of 2010 and swiftly preserved his status as one of Italy's most formidable marksmen.

Despite enjoying popular status in Turin, however, the experienced striker was linked with a switch away from the Juventus Stadium during the summer as many predicted he would inevitably fall down manager Antonio Conte's pecking order with the arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

The Premier League appeared as if it would be the Italy international's most likely destination, with Arsene Wenger's Gunners considered to be one of the frontrunners for his signature. 

A move to the Emirates Stadium never materialised, however, and any hopes the North London outfit may harbour of a return swoop for the former Udinese ace look as if they could be dashed with those aforementioned reports claiming that Beppe Bezzo - who represents Quagliarella - is currently stateside talking over a potential move for his client.

Arsenal, who have enjoyed a superb start to the new campaign after bouncing back from a torrid opening day defeat to Aston Villa and currently sit top of the Premier League, currently appear to be somewhat bare in the striking department.

Although Frenchman Olivier Giroud is enjoying a fine run of form, any injury to the former Montpellier man could threaten to de-rail Wenger's title hopes with only Nicklas Bendtner and the inexperienced Yaya Sanogo currently in reserve.
