Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio is under consideration at Arsenal.

TMW says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is weighing up a move for the Italy international, who penned a new deal with Juve earlier this season.

With doubts over Abou Diaby and Alex Song going into the summer market, Wenger sees Marchisio as the type addition to convince skipper Robin van Persie to stay.

Should Juve indicate a willingness to sell, Manchester United may also make a move, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson being a long-term admirer.
