The north London club recently suffered a huge blow when England international Theo Walcott was ruled out for the rest of this season after sustaining a long-term knee injury.

As a result, Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger has now been forced to enter the winter transfer window in order to find a short-term replacement for the flying wide man, although the Frenchman is said to only be interested in a loan capture this month, rather than having to splash the cash.

And that is why Arsenal appear to be attracted to Juve’s 26-year-old, a player who has largely found himself surplus to requirements in Turin so far in this campaign, with the Italy international having featured in just the 13 matches in total in all competitions for the Serie A champions to date, eight of which have come in the league.

However, with this season ending as it does with the Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil, Giovinco is understood to be keen to get in as much game time as possible between now and the summer in order to safeguard his position in the Azzurri squad.
