Juventus Target Arsenal & Man United Pair as Part of January Spending Spree

Turin side keen on Emirates Stadium and Old Trafford attackers.

Check-In to Man United v Arsenal

Not content with a 48 match unbeaten Serie A record the Turin giants are now looking to land a trio of top talents as Juventus look to boost their squad in their pursuit of retaining their domestic title whilst also making a concerted push for Champions League glory.

Italian source CalcioMercato claim that Antonio Conte, who is back from his ban in December, has targeted Malaga youngster Isco and Premier League pair Nani and Theo Walcott.

Of the trio it may well prove that the English based talents prove easier to land in January as both are having issues with their respective clubs.

Nani appears to have become surplus to requirements at Man United, no longer a first team regular and apparently unwilling to accept the conditions of a contract offer that is apparently on the table.

Similarly Theo Walcott has been frozen out of Arsene Wenger’s Premier League starting eleven as he also refuses to put pen to paper on a new deal. The Arsenal man hasn’t started a top tier game since the opening match of the season but has impressed when called upon in cameo roles as well in Capital One Cup action.

Isco on the other hand appears to be a player cash-strapped Malaga do not want to see leave any time soon, looking to tie the 20 year old attacking midfielder to a new contract that would see his release clause fee move from £17m to £30m.

Whilst Juventus have overcome all before them over the past 18 months they do arguably lack some attacking momentum and Conte may feel the inclusion of new options in this are could help them achieve their lofty goals.
