Emirates Stadium side set for Juventus offer that is not all that attractive.
Juventus are chasing Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.
Corriere dello Sport says Juve hope Arsenal are willing to negotiate on Walcott, who is out of contract at the end of next season, and are prepared to offer Milos Krasic in part-exchange for the England international.
Arsenal were one of a number of English clubs who tracked Krasic before he moved from CSKA Moscow to Juventus 15 months ago.
The Serb is out of favour with coach Antonio Conte and is keen to move to England in January, despite receiving big-money offers to return to Russia or move to Turkey.
So there you have it. Juventus, keen on in form young winger Theo Walcott, are willing to offer Milos Krasic, a 27 year old who doesn’t get a regular game at the Turin club, as part of an offer they hope will persuade Arsenal to sell their England international. It’s an offer that would be turned down flat.
22 year old Walcott is finally beginning to deliver on his obvious potential, managing to become a more effective performer who now knows where to deliver the final ball and has also learned how to convert the chances that come his way.
The fact that the former Southampton man has just 18 months to run on his contract may be a slight fear but Arsene Wenger managed to get Thomas Vermaelen to sign a new deal and hopes to do likewise with Walcott and Robin Van Persie.
Krasic has been a flop since his move to Juventus from CSKA Moscow and new boss Antonio Conte has used the Serbian sparingly and apparently the wide-man with a penchant for diving is not a happy bunny.
Perhaps if the offer was for off form Andrei Arshavin then perhaps Wenger would be interested but there is little or no chance that the Gunners boss would consider selling Theo Walcott given his resurgent form.
