Juventus to tempt Arsenal offering Buffon, Melo for Van Persie

Juventus hope to convince Arsenal to part with Robin van Persie by tabling a multi-player swap offer.

Corriere dello Sport says Juve are chasing the Holland international for the summer market and hope to tempt Arsene Wenger by putting goalkeeper Gigi Buffon and midfielder Felipe Melo on the table.

Van Persie has only just returned from ankle injury and Wenger rates the striker in the same class as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Juve powerbroker John Elkann is ready to make €175 million available for a massive overhaul of the playing and coaching staff this summer.
