Arsenal are reported to have opened talks with Juventus forward Sebastian Giovinco ahead of a potential switch in January, as reported by the Metro.
Reports suggest that manager Arsene Wenger is interested in bringing in another striker during the January transfer window, despite having signed Danny Welbeck on deadline day.
Prior to Welbeck’s arrival, it seemed as though the Gunners would struggle for forward options, with Olivier Giroud having been ruled out until the New Year after suffering a knock in the clash against Everton.
Displays without Giroud were not good enough, with Alexis Sanchez struggling to impose himself in a central role and it now seems as though Wenger is increasingly fearful of replicating that situation.
As a result, the north London side are supposedly considering Giovinco as a possible option for a January move.
The Italy international has found himself behind the likes of Fernando Llorente, Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans at Juve.
