Juve revive Walcott interest

Juventus are renewing their interest in Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott, who is at the centre of a bidding war after refusing to extend his contract.

The England international is out of contract in the summer and hit the headlines again this week with a sensational hat-trick against Newcastle United.

That performance showed he can also be used as a centre-forward, so his versatility further intrigued Antonio Conte.

According to Tuttosport, Juve have stepped up their pursuit of the 23-year-old and entered into a bidding war with Manchester City and Chelsea.

Arsenal would prefer to sell Walcott overseas to prevent strengthening their rivals, especially after seeing Robin Van Persie’s success at Manchester United.
