REPORTS: Arsenal Make Move For Italian Forward

By on January 10, 2014

Arsenal have make an enquiry about taking out-of-favour Juventus attacker Sebastian Giovinco on loan for the rest of the season, according to reports today.

Arsene Wenger has hinted that he may be forced into the transfer market following injuries to Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott and we’ve been linked with a number of forward’s in recent days.

The latest name to be thrown into the hat is Giovinco – who has previously been linked with a move to the Emirates – with the Metro citing reports coming out of Italy that suggest we’ve asked to take the player on loan for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old was tipped for big things in Serie A but injuries have hampered his progress and he’s been restricted to just two starts for Juventus this season, and it seems we’re prepared to offer him the chance to resurrect his career in the Premier League.

It remains to be seem how Juve will respond, but the diminutive attacker – who stands at just 5’5″ – could be open to the chance to get more regular action ahead of the World Cup next summer, so a loan deal could suit all parties.

Giovinco is a versatile forward who can play anywhere across the attacking third of the pitch, so would give Wenger plenty of options if he did end up making the move to north London.

    ‘I don’t know why Wenger is beating around the bush, he said he needs a “special” striker. Isn’t Jackson Martinez one of them?’

    This dude’s is very strong, very quick, got fantastic dribbling skills, very hungry for goals… He is super quality, a beast on d pitch and very deadly in front of goal, more so, he is an Arsenal fan. Mr Wenger, no need to look any further, i strongly believe this guy ticks all boxes for us, on a long and and short term fix.

    Though, i heard a rumour claiming that his release clause is not active until summer but find it difficult to believe.

    Good luck Arsene!

    There are many top class strikers available.The atomic ant may sizzle like mighty mouse but imho,will be a poor buy.
    Perhaps this is a ploy to divert attention from Wenger,s real target.
    If that is the real case ,well done.
