Arsenal linked Giovinco to decide future

Sebastian Giovinco

Juventus are holding talks over the future of forward Sebastian Giovinco and Arsenal may be keeping an eye on developments.

Sebastian Giovinco's representative will discuss the diminutive forward's future plans with Juventus knowing that Arsenal have been watching him for some time.

Nicknamed the 'Atomic Ant', Giovinco was tipped for the very top when he starred for Juventus' youth teams, but his career has stalled somewhat.

Now 27, Giovinco has slipped down the attacking pecking order at Juventus and spent most of last season warming the bench.

Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente formed a devastating partnership and it looks likely that Juventus will add Real Madrid marksman Alvaro Morata to their ranks.

It may be that Giovinco, who grew up in the Juventus youth system, may finally leave Turin in search of a club where he will be guaranteed game time.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have been linked with him over the last few months and there were rumours back in January that he may be headed for England.

Tuttosport is reporting that Giovinco's agent is discussing a possible contract renewal at Juventus until 2018 as his current deal ends next summer.

But talks may not get far if Giovinco feels he will be playing second fiddle next season and this may be the right time to quit the club.

Inter are reportedly keen on Seba, but Juventus would probably rather sell to a foreign side than a Serie A rival.
