Juventus are monitoring Theo Walcott's situation at Arsenal.

Juve coach Antonio Conte has confirmed his interest in Walcott and Bianconeri chiefs have been encouraged by the lack of progress over new contract talks for the England winger. Walcott's current deal has less than two years to run.

Juve, buoyed, by their new stadium move and likelihood of a Champions League return, will have the money to compete for Walcott's signature should he become available.

Chelsea are also watching developments closely, having had an enquiry rebuffed at the end of last season.
