Juventus boss Luigi Delneri has set his sights on landing Arsenal star Robin Van Persie as he looks to bring in fresh attacking options for his ageing strike force. The Turin side will look to offer a straight cash offer for the £27m rated striker but may also be willing to throw long term Gunners target Felipe Melo into the deal if needed.
Van Persie has spent large chunks of the last three seasons out with persistent injuries and Arsene Wenger has had to be thankful for the successful start shown by summer signing Marouane Chamakh as a result of the long spells without the Rotterdam born attacker.
Indeed the 27 year old Dutchman may also be tempted by a new challenge especially if the north London club does not manage to end it’s silverware drought this season. Van Persie has scored 64 goals from 147 starts and in his six and a half years at the club he has managed to win just one FA Cup winners medal in the process.
Luigi Delneri is looking for a long term replacement for mercurial Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero who is now 36 years of age and the club’s other attacking options, Amauri and Vincenzo Iaquinta, are 30 and 31 respectively leaving the club having to depend very much on loan acquisition Fabio Quagliarella.
Arsene Wenger has been trailing defensive midfielder Felipe Melo for the best part of two years and had been looking to sign the Brazilian battler before he opted to join Juventus in June 2009.
