The two continental heavy weights are eyeing key the French International midfielder to bolster their EPL challenge
According to Gazza Mercato, Arsenal have joined the race with Juventus to entice French International Blaise Matuidi from PSG. Arsenal are convinced that the powerful midfielder is interested in moving to the English Premier League, and are confident they can beat off competition from United. PSG coach Emery is understandably keen to retain the midfielder, who has become an important cog in the teams domination of Ligue 1.
Juventus coach Max Allegri is also an interested admirer of the combative Matuidi, and could be seen as an ideal cover of Marchisio who is out till at least the end of the year. It is now up to Arsenal to submit an offer for the player, which is likely to ensure a bidding war for his services.
