Arsenal in talks to sign Juve defender

Arsenal keen on signing Lichtsteiner

Arsenal are understood to have contacted Juventus over the potential transfer of defender Stephan Lichtsteiner in the January transfer window.

The Swiss right-back is out-of-contract with the Serie A giants at the end of the season, though Juve chief Giuseppe Marotta is keen on extending the player's deal.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been in contact with Marotta, in order to agree on a cut-price deal for the 30-year-old in the New Year.

Arsenal play hosts to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.
