Speculation Arsenal could raid Juventus for "special" player with Italian club in crisis

Arsenal supporters have urged the club to capitalise on the chaos at Juventus and raid the Italian club for several players.

The collective resignation comes as Juventus' financial statements underwent scrutiny by prosecutors over allegations of false accounting and market manipulation.

Juventus has denied any wrongdoing.

Last season, the Italian giants published an annual loss of £220m - a record-breaking fee in the history of the club.

And fans of rival clubs have speculated whether the Italian giants could be forced to sell players to balance the books.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a number of Juventus stars, including striker Dusan Vlahovic and midfielder Manuel Locatelli.

The Gunners tried to sign both players before they joined Juventus, from Fiorentina and Sassuolo respectively.

Arsenal were tipped to sign Serbia international Vlahovic in January before he instead moved to Turin in a £66m transfer.

Mikel Arteta's side also reportedly made an offer for Locatelli but failed in their bid to sign the Italy international, who instead joined Juve in 2021 on a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy.

Fans urge Arsenal to bid for Chiesa

Another Juventus player who has been linked with Arsenal, both before and after his move to Turin, is Federico Chiesa.

Gunners supporters have called on the Premier League club to make a bid for the Italy international, who could potentially be available on a cut-price deal.

"If Arsenal are to get anyone from Juventus, it's Federico Chiesa for me. He's a special player," tweeted one fan.

Another added: "If Juve are in trouble @Arsenal you better be on the phone to em about Chiesa, allow [Mykhailo] Mudryk if he's available."

While a third wrote: "It would be an absolute pleasure to pick some Juventus players up on the cheap at their funeral.

"Vlahovic/Locatelli/Chiesa are the only players I would be interested in."
