Van Persie visited Juventus – report

The Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie was in Turin last week to mull over a move to Juventus.

The Italian champions are looking for a big name striker to aid their Champions League assault and the Dutchman is one of the many players being linked.

Van Persie, according to the publication, visited the Italian city to be shown around the new stadium and also the club’s Vinovo training base.

It is being claimed that the Bianconeri have offered the international a contract worth €6m a campaign.

There are also suggestions that he’s been told that he can inherit Alessandro Del Piero’s No 10 shirt at the club if he wishes.

Reports earlier this month claimed that Van Persie’s agent had also been in Turin to discuss possible contract terms for his client.

Nevertheless, Juventus would still have to agree a fee with Arsenal and they are not the only outfit keen on the player. Manchester City are also very interested.

Van Persie’s future at his current club is in doubt given that he’s only contracted to the London club until June 2013.
