The 27 year old Italian international is also on Man United’s transfer radar and is said to have an uncertain future at the Turin club he has represented for his entire professional career.

Antonio Conte has handed Arturo Vidal a new contract with new deals expected to be signed by Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo which could leave Marchisio considering his options at the Serie A club.

The creative midfielder may well be ready to consider life away from Juventus though one wonders quite where he would fit into Arsenal’s current first team set-up with the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky vying for spots in Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven.

Marchisio has started nine of Juventus’s 16 Serie A fixtures this season and could perhaps be sacrificed as the Italian giants look to balance the books having failed to negotiate a path into the Champions League knockout stages.
