FOCUS: Juventus to try to convince Zaza to join Wolfsburg

03 August at 16:37
What is Simone Zaza's situation in Turin? Having started only five Serie A starts last year, the 25-year-old is being faced with the prospect of playing very little for a second season in a row. 

As Sky Sports reported earlier today, Juventus' meeting with a German agency representing Luiz Gustavo eventually saw Julian Draxler's name be mentioned, too, though the Bianconeri's interest in him isn't what it was last year. Interestingly, Wolfsburg proposed a swap including Simone Zaza, who they have been chasing for a while now. 

Juventus are trying to prod their fourth striker, whose role has been reduced since the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain. They are set to meet him and let him know that, so far, the BuLi side is the only one that is satisfying their demands. 

Zaza himself is in a bind: he's spoken to Mario Mandzukic and Andrea Barzagli about Wolfsburg, but it also happy in Italy. He's still waiting for Milan or Roma to come up with an offer.
