Arsenal linked Giovinco's agent: No talks in progress

The agent of Juventus forward Sebastian Giovinco has stated that no discussions are taking place regarding his client.

Sebastian Giovinco's agent has denied reports that his client is in talks with Arsenal and insists the player is staying at Juventus.

The diminutive forward had a miserable 2013-14 campaign at Juventus playing second fiddle to Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, but things have brightened so far this season under new boss Massimiliano Allegri.

While it had appeared that Giovinco would leave the club he developed in, it now looks less likely despite rumours linking him with Arsenal.

It has also been suggested that Juventus's city rivals Torino may enter a bid, but there doesn't appear to be any activity on deadline day.

"I can categorically rule out my client joining Torino," representative Andrea D'Amico told Tuttomercatoweb.

"At the moment there are no talks going on." 

Unless there is a major change in tune. Giovinco will be remaining at Juventus at least for the time being and will hope to build on his call up to Antonio Conte's first Italy squad.
