Arsenal have registered an interest in Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, and have opened talks with the 30-year-old’s representatives ahead of a possible January move, according to the Metro.
He has been with Juventus since the summer of the 2011, and has helped them to win three consecutive Serie A titles, scoring 10 goals and claiming 17 assists in his 121 appearances in all competitions.
However, his contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and although Juventus are really keen to keep him, talks over a contract extension have stalled. If a new deal is not signed by January, the Switzerland star will be free to talk to other clubs in January. Paris St. Germain and Real Madrid are said to be rivalling Arsenal for his signature.
