Juve consider Arshavin and Rakitic

Juventus are looking at January reinforcements including Andrei Arshavin and Ivan Rakitic.

Bianconeri director general Beppe Marotta has hinted at some new arrivals during the transfer window.

According to, the Turin giants are lining up an £18m bid for Arsenal man Arshavin.

The Italian media put the figure at around half that for the 29-year-old Russian attacking midfielder.

A much more likely move is for Schalke 04 creative figure Rakitic, who will be a free agent in June.

The Corriere dello Sport suggests there is competition from other sources, so 22-year-old Croatia international Rakitic could be brought in this month in exchange for Mohamed Sissoko.
