Italian giants Juventus are lining up a stunning double swoop for North London duo Theo Walcott and Gareth Bale, according to reports in Italy.
Juve are keen to add more creativity in the wide areas and have identified Walcott and Bale and the men to help guide them to the Italian title, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport. Giueseppe Marotta, general director at Juventus, has been a long term admirer of the pair and has been given the green light to launch a double swoop in January.
Tottenham have no interest in selling their Welshman and will stand firm against any offers, as they did with Luka Modric last summer, and will slap a £50m valuation on the wingers head to deter any potential suitors. The only way a deal could happen is if Bale himself pushes for a move.
The situation with Walcott is slightly more complicated as the 22-year-old is out of contract in 18 months and Juventus will be keen to test Arsenal’s resolve with a January move. The Italians will also be willing to offer winger Milos Krasic into any deal for either Walcott or Bale, as the Serbian is currently unsettled in Turin after failing to hold down a first team place.
