Juventus are following Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has dismissed reports that Adebayor will seek a huge contract increase next week.

"Agents always get nervous in May and then calm down at the end of August. It will be all quiet then until January 1," said Wenger.

"Adebayor certainly will not be allowed to go and it is more likely he will be challenged to prove himself again in the opening months of the new season before a new contract offer is made."

However, it emerged yesterday that the striker is Juventus manager Claudio Ranieri's top transfer target and he is prepared to meet his wage demands, says the Daily Mail.
