There are some interesting reports in the Football Transfer Tavern tonight.

The speculation is reported by Metro who provide Gunners supporters will some positive news as Arsene Wenger looks to add striking reinforcements to his squad following injuries to Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott in the last few weeks.
The 26-year-old Juventus man is reportedly one of the targets for the Emirates Stadium outfit, and now his agent Claudio Pasqualin has admitted that he had inital negotiations with the Premier League leaders for his client.
“We have had contact with Arsenal,” said Pasqualin.
“It was a request for information about his situation. There was nothing more [at the moment].”
Giovinco has been a bit-part player with the Turin club this season and he is understood to be keen on moving abroad for a short period as he seeks regular football in a World Cup year.
It is unlikely that Juventus would let him leave on a permanent deal, but a loan agreement could suit all parties.
