Stephan Lichtsteiner has admitted talks over a potential move to Arsenal are still ongoing with his deal at Juventus expiring this month.
Sky Sports News understands Arsenal are in talks with right-back Lichtsteiner over a contract with the 34-year-old expected to become a free agent when he ends his seven-year spell with the Serie A champions.
But reports a deal is done for the Swiss to join the Gunners has been dismissed by Lichtsteiner.
“I cannot comment on the negotiations.
“As long as nothing is completed, that is always interesting in football. I think we all know that.”
New Gunners boss Unai Emery is understood to be a long-term admirer of the player, who could become his first signing since succeeding Arsene Wenger.
Lichtsteiner is set to captain Switzerland at the World Cup and take his international caps to over 100.
He has won seven Serie A titles, four Coppa Italias and three Italian Super Cups at Juventus after joining the club from Lazio in 2011.
