Serie A champions wants Emirates Stadium & Anfield pair.
Juventus plan Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez bid
Juventus have told Robin van Persie they want to pair him with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, as they bid to lure him to Italy in the face of strong interest from Manchester United and City.
The Serie A champions have had an initial enquiry rebuffed by Arsenal, who also dismissed an opening formal bid from United out of hand on Friday.

Well it’s always good to aim high isn’t it. Juventus clinched the Serie A title last term without losing a single game but did so without much in the way of proven prolific firepower and now the Old Lady of Italian football is set to make moves for a Premier League pair who they may struggle to secure this summer.
Robin Van Persie is of course a player Arsenal want to keep hold of but the Dutchman publicly stated his intention to leave by making it clear he wouldn’t sign a new Gunners contract. This would mean he could leave on a free transfer in a year’s time and the North London club must therefore decide whether they are ready to accept offers over the possibility of making nothing from the goal machine’s sale.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will surely have no intention of selling the one effective attacking weapon the Anfield side possesses and the Merseyside club has tied Suarez to a long term contract so advances from Juventus would have to be fairly astronomical for any deal for the Uruguayan international to become even a remotest possibility of happening.
Last term Juventus’s top scorer managed just ten goals in Serie A action, compare that to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 28 goal haul for AC Milan or Edinson Cavani’s 24 goal return for Napoli and it begins to get clearer why Antonio Conte would be keen on bringing in a goal machine, it would however be a minor miracle if either of this Premier League pair were to sign for the Turin based side.
