Serie A giants still in the hunt.
Italian side Juventus are still hoping to stump Arsenal to a deal for Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain, according to Sky Sports.
Rumour has it that the Gunners have already agreed a deal with the Spanish giants for the 25-year-old, but club chiefs are refusing to give up hope in landing his signature after he was told that he could leave the Santiago Bernabeau this summer.
The Old Lady romped to the Scudetto this season and are hoping that a new striker will re-establish them as a major force in Europe once again, and the Argentine international has been targeted as the ideal man to fire them into the latter reaches of the Champions League.
And the club’s general director, Beppe Marotta, believes that there are more twists and turns to come in this long running saga.
“Higuain? I do not want to say anything because there is still so much time left for things to happen,” he told Sky Sports Italia.
Juve have also been heavily linked with the likes of Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez and Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, but Marotta has decided to keep his cards close to his chest when it comes to potential transfer targets.
“There is no hurry. They are both great players but they are also with great clubs, so it would not be right to discuss them.
“I do not want to create an illusion that things are already in motion.”
