Four of England's biggest clubs are keeping tabs on Andrea Pirlo's situation at Juventus The 34 year-old midfield schemer is off contract in June and eager to play on next season.

While Juve want him to stay, Pirlo is unhappy with Juve coach Antonio Conte's rotation policy and wants assurances over his place before opening talks about a new deal.

Sportmediaset says Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are all keen to tempt Pirlo to England for a career swansong.

Everything will be decided in January. If Juve cannot convince Pirlo to stay, his camp will push for a release from the final six months of his contract so he can negotiate a final payday with interested Premier League clubs.
