Arsenal have made an offer to loan Juventus forward Sebastian Giovinco for the rest of the season as they search for a striker who can solve their attacking woes, Metro reports.
The club have already saw their offer rejected last year when they made an approach for the Italian star, but have made a second attempt so sign him ahead of deadline day.
Arsene Wenger also faces interest from Serie A side Torino, who has also offered a season-long loan for the 27-year-old.
With Yaya Sanogo receiving heavy criticism in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City and Olivier Giroud out for about four months, the club are in desperate need of extra depth up top.
No reply has been given by the Serie A champions yet, but if the Gunners can include a reasonable fee, a move for the tricky attacker could still be in the books.
He has been rather limited to his playing time in Italy, making only 17 Serie A appearances last season, scoring two and providing one as he may consider a move to the Emirates where first team places may be easier to come by.
