In what would turn out as a stunning transfer if it where to go through, Arsenal have been placed on red alert for Claudio Marchisio after contract talks with Juventus stall.
The Italy international has been a key player for the Italian champions this season, however, he has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal, with one year left to run out on his current contract.
The 29-year-old is said to be willing to remain with the Old Lady and will continue to push for renewed terms despite several reports that negotiations have hit a wall.
TalkSPORT claim that Arsenal and Liverpool could both make a move for Marchisio in the coming weeks, and his agent confirms he’s had calls from Premier League clubs.
Marchisio’s father and agent, Stefano said: “The truth is, apart from some former Juventus players, I haven’t met with anyone, I’m waiting for a call from the management.
“I think we could meet soon, perhaps within the next seven days. Claudio has repeatedly demonstrated the will to remain at Juve, but we know that it takes two to make a marriage.
“If we don’t find an agreement, we’ll look around. I’ve received many calls from top clubs in the Premier League and the Bundesliga.”
