This source suggests that Wenger is getting closer and closer to securing this unhappy Italian youngster in January!
With Sebastian Giovinco’s future at Juventus looking far from secure, sections of the English press are tipping Arsenal to make a January transfer bid for the starlet.
Giovinco is regarded as one of Europe’s most explosive young talents, but his future at Juventus could be in limbo as he has been in a contract dispute with the club all summer.
The 21-year-old is demanding an increase in salary to €1m a year but so far the club’s management is refusing to meet his demands.
Yesterday Giovinco appeared to express his frustration at this situation when he stated: “My renewal with Juventus is not a priority and to be honest I couldn’t care less whether the contract is renewed or not.”
Giovinco has been linked with a move to Premiership giants Arsenal repeatedly over the last few months, with manager Arsene Wenger known to be a huge admirer of his creativity, flair and fantasy.
Reports in England claim that The Gunners will table a bid for the attacking midfielder in January and, due to the current contract dispute, are confident of getting their man. (goal.com)
Giovinco is considered as one of the hottest young properties in Italy right now but he is growing increasingly upset about his situation at the Turin club. He has all the hallmarks of the kind of young talent that would fit in perfectly at the Emirates. Valued in the £8m bracket the youngster was one of the stars of the Italian Olympic team and given the long running dispute Arsenal could well sneak in a low bid so as to rid the Serie A team of a player they don’t appear to value to highly. Do Gunners fans have any other players they would like to see arrive in the January transfer window?
