Juventus are planning a £3 million bid for Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

The Mirror says with Juve boss Claudio Ranieri having cash to spend to build the Turin side for their return to the top flight, Senderos has emerged as a serious target for the Italian giants, who believe he wants to quit England.

Last season he found himself a bit-part player after the arrival of William Gallas from Chelsea as Kolo Toure's first-choice central-defensive partner, falling behind fellow Swiss Johan Djourou in the Emirates Stadium pecking order.
