Arsenal linked with Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner
Arsenal are being linked with fresh interest in Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.
The versatile Swiss international was reportedly a target for the Gunners earlier in the summer. At that stage, Arsene Wenger’s side were unwilling to match Juve’s £12m asking price for the 29-year-old.
But with the end of the transfer window now looming, the deal could be revisited. Extra impetus could be provided by the Italian club’s plans to sign Feyenoord full-back Daryl Janmaat.
Reports in Italy suggest that the Old Lady are lining up a £7.5m bid for the Dutch international, but that will only go ahead if they sell Lichtsteiner. That means they might be a bit more flexible in their valuation.
However, Spanish giants Real Madrid are also believed to be monitoring Lichtsteiner’s situation.
