Italian champions Juventus are set to offer winger Paul Pogba a new long term deal in a bid to secure him to the club in order to fend off interest from Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea, the Daily Star reports.

The former Manchester United youth product has been heavily linked with a return to England after just one season in Serie A that saw him lift the Scudetto and become a part of the French national team in the process.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Juventus will now discuss a new lengthy deal with the 20-year-old, whose existing contract expires in 2016.

Earlier this month Pogba had already admitted that he wanted to stay at the club, but also let on that there was some significant interest in his services during the transfer window.

“Were there other clubs chasing me? Yes, but I had my mind only on Juventus,” he said.

“At the time I heard of interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, and in Italy AC Milan, but there is no one like Juve.

“As for my future? I’m glad to be here. I want to win as many trophies as I can in this shirt.”

Pogba made 38 appearances across all competitions last season following a frustrating final campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson that saw him fail to establish himself in the first team set up.
