As reported earlier, Juventus coach Antonio Conte don’t seem to be confident in 25 year old Mauricio Isla, but before letting the Chile international –tracked by Inter Milan- leave, the bianconeri must find another wingback; and also for this reason, they have offered, according to calciomercato.com, 8 million euros to Manchester City to obtain 27 year old Aleksandar Kolarov. Isla is not in any case the only player intended to leave Turin: according to Tuttosassuolocalcio.com, Sassuolo are about to carry out the negotiation for 26 year old left wingback Reto Ziegler, while, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sunderland have joined Norwich City and West Ham United in the hunt for 30 year old striker Fabio Quagliarella; on the contrary, as reported by Il Secolo XIX, the Piedmontese club has refused Genoa’s offer for 29 year old external midfielder Simone Pepe. Finally, as reported in the last days, the Serie A defending champions are thinking about Sevilla FC 20 year old midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, but, to obtain the France Under 20 international, they will have to compete, according to metro.co.uk, with Arsenal.
Juventus keep on seeking a skilled player for their offensive line, and, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, will try to sign CSKA Moscow 27 year old attacking midfielder Keisuke Honda until August 19th, when they will have to edit the squad list for the Champions League. Moreover, also considering the difficulties to obtain Fiorentina 21 year old second striker Adem Ljajic, the rossoneri are keen, according to Tuttosport, on Catania 29 year old forward Gonzalo Bergessio, even if the Sicilian club could let him go only during the Winter transfer window.
