Arsenal and Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are in a rowdy mood as Metro explained how they were in a three horse race for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano with Juventus.
The Brazilian sits top of the goal scoring chart in the Champions League with nine goals and it is no surprise that the three heavyweights are chasing his signature.
The Ukrainian giants have been a surprise package in Europe this year and this is due to Adriano’s stunning performances.
Juventus look to continue their dominance in Italy and purchasing the 27-year-old would certainly show this intention.
Adriano’s contract expires in January 2016 and he could be available on a cut-price deal.
As much as Shakhtar want to keep hold of their man they would prefer to sell him for a realistic fee rather than risk losing him on a free.
Liverpool are hoping to secure a proven goal scorer in the summer with the future of Rickie Lambert, Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli uncertain at Anfield.
Arsenal and Liverpool fans. Are you confident that the English clubs could entice the Brazilian or is Italy a favourable destination? Let us know your thoughts below.
