Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has been speaking about claims that Juventus are interested in securing his services at the end of the current season.
The Italian club are aware that the England man’s contract is set to end at the end of next season and with his long-term future unclear, they would love to tempt him in a move to the Serie A.

Responding to claims of Juventus’ interest, Walcott said: “I will listen to what Arsenal have to say. Hopefully we will sit down with the club soon and talk things over.”
This isn’t the most convincing statement from the former Southampton man of course, so they will be hoping they can at least speak to him and offer a lucrative deal to move to Italy.
Juventus have the small matter of hosting Fiorentina first though with the two teams meeting in Turin on Tuesday evening hoping to get three valuable points on the board.
The home side have had a mixed start to the domestic campaign. They currently sit 3rd in Serie A having gone unbeaten so far, but they have drawn four of their seven games, including a relatively disappointing 2-2 draw with Genoa on home soil last time out.
There is no doubt that they would like to turn more of these draws into victories as they aim to challenge for the title this year.
As for Fiorentina, they too have been relatively inconsistent so far this season. After seven games, they sit 10th in the table having failed to win on the road so far. They have also gone four matches without a win.
Looking at the team news for this one, Juventus Fabio Quagliarella and Arturo Vidal should return after missing the clash with Genoa, while Mattia Cassani will miss out for Fiorentia with a muscle injury.
It gets underway at 7.45pm this evening.
