Juventus to make Giovinco decision as Tottenham and Arsenal wait

Sebastian Giovinco

Juventus are set to meet with the agent of unsettled forward Sebastian Giovinco to decide whether he'll be sold this summer.

Sebastian Giovinco has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham in recent Italian reports and Juventus are set to decide whether to keep him or encourage bids.

 

The diminutive forward, known as 'The Atomic Ant', was heralded as the next Alessandro Del Piero early in his career, but things have stalled somewhat of late.

 

Now 27 years old and spending much of his time warming the Juventus bench, Giovinco may leave the club that developed him from the age of nine and look for a new employer.

 

Renowned for his ability to take on defenders and find the key pass, Giovinco could be a good addition for any side who give him time to settle.

 

As Juventus boss Antonio Conte has decided to stay, Giovinco's future looks increasingly likely to be elsewhere after being seen as second fiddle to Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente last season.

 

Conte is keen to move to a 4-3-3 formation but will most likely bring in men to add to his attacking ranks rather than give Giovinco more time.

 

According to Tuttosport, Giovinco's agent will meet with Juventus directors over the next few days to discuss whether he will be renewing his contract, which expires in 2015, or moving on.

 

Tottenham and Arsenal have asked for information about Giovinco and Liverpool are also reportedly interested in him.

 

Giovinco's English suitors may have to contend with Greek outfit Olympiakos and heavy spending Monaco though if he is allowed to leave.
