Arsenal in contact with Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie

Arsenal are in contact with Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

La Gazzetta dello Sport says the Gunners have made contact with his agents to assess his desire for the move.

McKennie, who started every matches for the US men's national team at the Qatar World Cup, has played 15 league games this season, 21 in all competitions, but is considered 'the most expendable' of Max Allegri's squad, despite his versatility.

The likes of Aston Villa, Fulham and Bournemouth are also said to be keen, but the 41-cap international has not shown any interest in those moves because he wants to move to a 'top club'.

A move to the league-leading Gunners could therefore tempt former Schalke star McKennie as boss Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his squad in the January transfer window.
