Juventus star strongly linked with Emirates Stadium move.
Arsenal are to enter the race to sign Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio according to Football Direct News.
The 28 year old has increasingly found his role in Antonio Conte’s first team set-up limited with the likes of Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal and veteran Andrea Pirlo usually getting the nod ahead of the Italian international.
Marchisio has started 15 of Juve’s 29 Serie A fixtures and may well be considering his future at the Turin club and could be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
Arsenal will be battling Man United for his attention Conte will look to bank £20m from his sale, a fair price for a player of Marchisio’s experience.
Though Arsenal have a number of central midfield options Marchisio would offer a different dimension to the Gunners squad and it’s possible that Arsene Wenger may consider selling Mikel Arteta, who has been distinctly average this term, to may room for the one club man.
Marchisio has made 212 appearances for Juventus and was key in their back to back Serie A title winning campaigns.
