Emirates Stadium attacker on Serie A giants radar.

Juventus are keen to push on with efforts to land Arsenal star Mesut Ozil as the Serie A side seek to make use funds accrued from their massive new Adidas kit deal according to the Daily Express.

The Turin giants have made around £100m from their new six year deal with Adidas, bringing to an end their association with merchandising rivals Nike, and boss Massimiliano Allegri wants to invest some of that money in German international Ozil.

Arsenal are highly unlikely to consider offers for the 26-year-old, who cost the North London side a club record £42.5m two years ago, though this source cites the fact that the World Cup winner is an Adidas figurehead as a potential motivation for such a deal being completed.

Ozil enjoyed a superb campaign in 2014/15, netting five goals and providing eight assists in his 30 starts in all competitions, and is seen by Juventus as a possible replacement for Chilean Arturo Vidal.
