Juventus star Palladino wanted by Arsenal

Juventus star Raffaele Palladino is yet again being linked in the Italian media with a move to Arsenal in the summer.

The 23-year-old is one of Italy's most promising young players and has impressed hugely in his two appearances for the Italian national team, against the Faroe Islands, and then most notably Portugal last month.

However he has started just 12 of Juve's 29 games in Serie A this term and has been mostly utilised in a less familiar role on the right or left side of midfield.

Palladino has come out in the press and complained about both his lack of action and for having to play out of position, and despite recently signing a new contract, his future in Turin is less than secure.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has unsuccessfully tried to buy the former Livorno man in the past, and this time he is confident of his chances of succeeding.
