Juventus willing to meet £20M Arsenal price for Van Persie

Juventus are ready to match Arsenal's valuation for Robin van Persie.

The Daily Mirror says Juventus will be the first team to meet Arsenal's asking price for Van Persie when they bid £20million for the striker in the coming weeks.

The Italians are locked in a battle with Manchester City and Manchester United for the wantaway Gunners captain, but believe they hold the advantage due to the player's desire not to play for another club in England.

As part of the whopping £20m deal, Juventus, who won the Italian title last season, has told the Premier League top scorer's representatives that they will pay him a staggering £190,000 a week, after tax.
