Giovinco's agent confirms Premier League interest, with Arsenal & Tottenham rivals both keen
The agent of Sebastian Giovinco has confirmed that his client is the subject of Premier League interest this summer, with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal joining Liverpool in the race to sign the Italian striker.
Arsenal have been tracking the diminutive forward for some time now as they look to boost their forward options ahead of the next season, while Liverpool have recently shown interest in Giovinco as Brendan Rodgers looks to sign able competition for Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
The player’s representative – Andrea D’Amico – has claimed that Giovinco is set to have talks with Juventus over his future with just one year remaining on his current contract in Turin, and believes there is a lot of interest growing in his client, from both from the Premier League and right around Europe.
D’Amico told reporters, “I am not surpised that Arsenal and Tottenham are being linked, given the quality of Arsene Wenger’s choices and the fine level of Tottenham’s squad.
“However, they are not the only clubs. Olympiakos, Monaco and Liverpool? There are many other teams, as Giovinco is appreciated everywhere.
“Before anything, we’ll talk to Juventus and then we’ll see. At Juventus there are not other players with his characteristics. Clearly, he needs to be playing more consistently.”
