Arsenal are reportedly readying a summer move for Juventus youngster Paul Pogba, a player Arsene Wenger has made two previous attempts to sign, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Gunners boss is known to be an admirer of the rangy midfielder, who has been dubbed the ‘New Patrick Vieira’ and will apparently look to lure the French international to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 20 year old left Man United to join Juventus on a free transfer last July but has played something of a bit part role for Antonio Conte’s side this season, starting 18 of the Turin side’s 34 Serie A fixtures, scoring five goals in the process.

Pogba may be unsettled in Italy, frequently experiencing racist abuse, and could be tempted by a move to join the North London club.

Juventus will apparently demand around £15m for the midfielder, a fee that Arsenal can certainly afford this summer as Arsene Wenger prepares to spend freely to improve his squad.

Wenger could well do with a strong presence in the centre of the park as they have not adequately replaced Alex Song, who left for Barcelona last August, with Mikel Arteta having to fill a makeshift holding role for much of the campaign.
