Juventus will definitely sell striker Sebastian Giovinco in the summer after failing to offload him in January, reports Goal.

Giovinco has fallen well down the pecking order for the Serie A leaders with Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tevez and Mirko Vucinic standing between him and first team action.

That has left him and the club keen to part ways, with Juventus looking to cut strike his wages off the bill while Giovinco is looking for first team football.

The Atomic Ant, as he is affectionately known at the Juventus Stadium, was subject to four offers in the January transfer window, but failed to secure a move away from the club.

One of those clubs is believed to have been Arsenal, who were on the lookout for a striker following the injury to Theo Walcott.

A number of sources claimed Arsene Wenger had contacted the 27-year-old's representatives about a switch to the Emirates, only to refuse to up his interest.

Arsenal signed no replacement for Walcott in the end, leaving them with limited options up front but it is believed Wenger will continue his recruitment plans for a striker in the summer.

Giovinco is believed to be free to leave Turin in the summer as Juventus and hope the interested parties will return with a bid when the season ends.

That could give Arsenal the chance to seal a permanent deal for the diminutive goal scorer.
