Juventus scouts made check on Arsenal pair Van Persie, Walcott

Juventus scouts were at Emirates on Sunday to see Arsenal defeat Manchester City.

City midfielder Nigel de Jong has been linked with a £11 million move to Juve this week.

However, Juve GM Beppe Marotta, who has been handed an €80 million warchest for the summer market, is ready to compete with all comers for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie. Theo Walcott, still to discuss a new deal with Arsenal, is also a favourite of Juve.
