Juventus confirm Lukas Podolski interest

Juventus official Giuseppe Marotta says that he is interested in luring Lukas Podolski away from Arsenal this winter.

Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed an interest in signing Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski in the January transfer window.

The 29-year-old has found first-team opportunities hard to come by since returning from a long-term hamstring injury last December.

On Thursday, the Germany international hinted of a move away from the Emirates Stadium, and Marotta claims that Turin is an option for him if he wishes.

"If there is a possibility in January to move on the transfer market [for Podolski] we will do that," the Juve chief is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Podolski, a £10.9m signing from Cologne in 2012, has a further two years to run on his current deal with the Gunners.

Inter Milan are another Italian club that have been credited with an interest.
