Agent Reveals Arsenal, Man Utd And Liverpool Have All Enquired About Italian Midfielder
According to the Express, Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool have all made contact with Claudio Marchisio's agent. The Juventus midfielder is growing restless as his contract situation is "not even being considered" by the Italian giants according to his agent.
"Has there been other contact? I did receive a few phone calls, above all from top Premier League clubs. Of course we can only be flattered and this underlines Claudio’s excellent season so far" said Marchisio's agent.
Aside from being stupendously handsome, the 29-year-old is an excellent central midfielder who'd add quality to any Premier League side. A case can be made for each of Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool needing a midfielder, but with Steven Gerrard's impending departure, Liverpool may be more willing to splash the cash on the right man.
No price has been mooted, but transfermarkt.com value Marchisio at roughly £24million, which is no measly sum. It'll be interesting to see how the Italian's contract situation turns out because if he does end up becoming available, plenty of clubs will be preparing bids.
