Juventus confirms interest in Arsenal star

Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed his side's interest in signing Arsenal star Robin van Persie.

The 28-year-old striker is set to enter the final year of his contract with the Gunners this summer.

Marotta told the Italian website calciomercato.com: “Van Persie is a great player. He is a complete player and would be useful to any team. But he still has one year left on his contract with Arsenal.

“We will try to put the icing on the cake this summer but the important thing is that the mix is good.”

Van Persie has also been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris St Germain, AC Milan, Inter, Manchester United and Manchester City.
