Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been urged by teammate Leonardo Bonucci to further his career in Turin amid reported interest in the signature of the France international. Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with bids.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals and provided three assists in 18 Serie A appearances this season as Juventus bid to clinch a third successive league title. And, understandably, the Bianconeri are desperate to ensure Pogba commits to a new deal.

Bonucci, like all at Juventus, is hopeful Pogba will sign a renewal and continue the 'incredible' start to his career with the Italian champions.

"It's right that [Pogba] doesn't listen too much to voices coming from the outside," Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

"It's normal though, he's a 20-year-old boy who has done some incredible things in the last two years and it's right that big clubs should want him.

"However, I hope that Juventus can keep him for another few years."

Pogba joined Juve in the summer of 2012 from Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson had initially wanted to keep the player at Old Trafford but allowed the teenager to leave after claiming he had disrespected the club.

A return to the Premier League has been mooted as a possibility with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reported to be interested in bringing the player to the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho has also been credited with interest in Pogba, although it would take a fee of around £53 million to ensure he arrived at Stamford Bridge.
