The Cagliari playmaker won his first call-up to the Azzurri squad this week and ControCampo says his early season form has already alerted Liverpool and Arsenal, both of which are prepared to bid £12 million for the former AC Milan midfielder in January.

Foggia, who is on £700,000-a-year, is on-loan at Cagliari from Lazio, but has already ruled out returning to the Rome club. Cagliari can sign the midfielder permanently for £6 million.
