Juventus in Chelsea, Arsenal talks over player-exchanges

The Daily Record says Juve sporting director Alessio Secco met Rangers chief scout Ewan Chester in London yesterday.

Secco has also had talks with Arsenal and Chelsea to discuss fringe players being farmed out to gain top-team experience in either the SPL or the Premiership.

Any movement would be subject to Walter Smith's side qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League with a recognised left-back top of the Ibrox manager's shopping list.

As part of the arrangement Juve would like first refusal on any players the British teams are willing to sell.

Right now the Turin club are not involved in Europe following their demotion to Serie B two seasons ago.

Coach Claudio Ranieri, left, wants his fringe players to gain experience of playing abroad ahead of Juventus's expected return to the Champions League next season.
