Matri-Djourou swap in the works?

It is rumoured that Juventus and Arsenal are set to do business again with a January swap between Alessandro Matri and Johan Djourou.

The Daily Express suggested that striker Matri is a January target for the Gunners, as he is considerably cheaper than Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, would be available mid-season and has fallen down the pecking order at the Juventus Stadium.

Matri has slipped behind the likes of Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco in the eyes of Coach Antonio Conte.

Meanwhile, Juve are said to be in talks with Arsenal for defender Djourou, who had also been linked to Napoli in the past.

He is seen as a replacement for Lucio, who is expected to leave in January after just six months in Turin.

The two clubs have already done business this season with Nicklas Bendtner arriving at Juve on loan.
