Stephan Lichtsteiner has confirmed that he’s in talks with Arsenal about a possible free move to the Emirates, however, he also makes clear that no deal is done.
The 34-year-old Swiss defender is out of contract at Juventus and will leave the club this summer having won seven consecutive Serie A titles in his seven years in Turin.
“Nothing is finished yet,” Lichtsteiner told press when asked about the rumours.
“I cannot comment on the negotiations. As long as nothing is completed, that is always interesting in football. I think we all know that.”
It remains to be seen whether Lichtsteiner, who is due to captain his country at the World Cup in Russia, becomes the first signing of the Unai Emery era.
The Gunners are also thought to be close to deals for Borussia Dortmund’s Greek centre-back Sokratis Papapastaratatatatapopopopopolous and PSG youngster Yacine Adli.
