According to Metro, another possible acquisition for the Arsenal squad in January is Sebastian Giovinco. This speedy technician is currently out of Antonio Conte’s plans in Juventus. He has made only two Serie A starts for Juventus this season, and it is clear that Llorente and Tevez are in front of him in the pecking order. Without a doubt, no player would be happy with the situation he’s in.

Giovinco was once regarded as a great talent, and considered as a future star when he was making fireworks with Juventus in the youth ranks, but he couldn’t make the impact he was predicted to make. He is now 26 years old, not a young player anymore, and he is struggling again to find a regular first team place in Juventus.

Arsenal would sign the Italian striker on loan, with the right to buy out his contract at the end of the season. It is unclear whether Juve will opt for that, but Giovinco would be surely happy to play regular first team football for such a big team, and this could be his opportunity to fight for the place in the Italian team in the Brazil World Cup.

Giovinco is famous for his speed and great technique, but he is regarded as a great set piece taker first and foremost. He could take over Walcott’s place in the squad, until Walcott recovers from his injury. The two of them are somewhat similar players, and Wenger believes that he could fit in Arsenal pretty quickly and successfully.
