Gallas on verge of Juventus switch
Thursday 24 June 2010
Williams Gallas is on the verge of leaving Arsenal to join Juventus, according to the France international’s agent.
Etienne Mendy claims the former Chelsea star is ready to accept a two-year deal in Turin.
"I can confirm that Juventus are interested in the defender," Mendy told Itasportpress.it.
"I will meet the Bianconeri directors to find an agreement over his wages after having been in touch with them a few days ago.
"Juventus want Gallas and he would be happy to wear the Bianconeri shirt."
Gallas’ Emirates Stadium contract expires at the end of June and the Gunners have shown no interest in offering him an extension.
The 32-year-old, who was part of the mutinous Les Bleus squad at this summer’s World Cup finals, scored 17 goals in 142 appearances for Arsenal during his four-year stay in north London.
