Claudio Marchisio has been ever-present for Juventus in recent times making over 300 appearances, and helped the club to a domestic double and a run through to the Champions League final where they fell at the feet of Barcelona.
According to talkSPORT, negotiations between Marchisio and the Old Lady have slowed to renew his current deal, which reaches its climax at the end of next season - leading to speculation regarding the state of his future.
Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger would be set to move for the Italy international in the coming weeks if no agreement can be reached.
The Turin based midfielder would be an excellent addition for either club, both teams are lacking a world-class central midfielder who has the capability to change the game within an instance.
Marchisio’s father and agent Stefano Marchisio spoke to calciomercato: "The truth is, apart from some former Juventus players, I haven't met with anyone, I'm waiting for a call from the management.
"The ball is in the Old Lady's court, I don't think they'd let a player like him go. If we don't find an agreement, we'll look around.”
Marchisio is a pivotal player for the Old Lady having been there at the club his whole career, surely the Serie A champions wouldn’t let a player of his calibre slip from under their noses.
