The 25 year-old has been a long-term target for Juve and Conte wants a deal done in winter transfer window according to Tuttosport. Biabiany is co-owned by Parma and Sampdoria, with the latter giving their green light for the player’s sale ahead of the winter market.
Should the deal sail through, it could open the door for Arsenal to land one of their top transfer targets for the winter window. The Gunners in their search for a new striker have been linked with a swoop for Spanish striker Fernando Llorente who has had a rather uneventful first few months in the Serie A and the Turin club. The former Athletico Bilbao man is said to be open to a move to Arsenal, a club that also chased his signature last season before he opted for Juventus. Llorente hasn’t been a regular at Juventus and the arrival of another striker might just push him further down the pecking order.
With Arsenal having just one striker, Llorente will find his chances of regular football hugely enhanced and should he get more regular first team action, his chances of making the Spanish party to the 2014 FIFA World Cup would equally be brightened.
Llorente is a striker similar to Giroud which means he would be a direct competition for the Frenchman but Giroud still has an edge since he is already settled at the Emirates and in English football. To this end, Llorente will have to play as back up to Giroud but the Spaniard would prove a more dependable fall back option to him than the inept Bendtner and Park.
