Juventus ace Claudio Marchisio has revealed that he has received phone calls regarding a potential switch to a host of leading Premier League clubs.

However the Italian star says nothing has come directly - while his agent has hinted that the 28-year-old is likely to stay in Serie A.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been linked with the midfielder in the past. 

Now the player has revealed that contact has been made about a switch to all three clubs, but only by middlemen and not the clubs themselves.

"Sometimes I have received phone calls from agents who told me of the interest of clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool," he revealed.

"But no one from these clubs, however, has never contacted directly us. And in case I would tell them to talk to Juve."

Marchisio has been a key part of Juve's side this season as they look to retain their Serie A title, and has made 20 league appearances.

However with the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pigba and Arturo Vidal ahead of him, the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal may be tempted to offer him the chance of regular football with a summer swoop.

The Old Lady sit at the top of the table currently, 14 points clear of nearest rivals Roma.

His agent and father Stefano says that while contract talks are on the back burner for now, a new deal to extend his stay in Turin beyond 2016 could be discussed soon.

"I've read that the renewal should be imminent, but Claudio is focused on the season and doesn't think about the contract," he said.

"The current agreement expires in 2016 and there is time for talk about it."
