As well known, Juventus’executives are also working to reinforce their team’s defensive line, and one of their main targets for such position remains Torino 25 year old Angelo Ogbonna: the bianconeri don’t want to spend more than 12 million euros, while Napoli have offered 15 millions, but the player, valued by his current club 18 millions, wants Juve only. For this reason, the Serie A defending champions, to convince their city rivals to reduce their request, could make in the next days a new attempt for Inter Milan same-aged Andrea Ranocchia. Perhaps the nerazzurri are already in talks with the Piedmontese club for 24 year old wingback Maurico Isla, for whom, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the bianconeri have increased thei request up to 8 million euros, as they have not appreciated Inter’s attempt for 29 year old right back Stephan Lichtsteiner; and if this latter would leave, the Serie A defending champions, according to Tuttosport, could replace him with a nerazzurri target, Udinese 28 year old Dusan Basta. Still regarding the possible departures, Sunderland, still according to “La Gazzetta”, are ready to offer 10 million euros to the Piedmontese club to obtain 28 year old attacking midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini.
As reported earlier, AC Milan are still in talks with Santos to yield them 29 year old forward Robinho; the Peixe, as highlighted by calciomercato.com, have obtained from the Lombard club the permission to negotiate with the former Real Madrid player, whose departure would ease the signing of Fiorentina 21 year old second striker Adem Ljajic. The rossoneri are also seeking an attacking midfielder, and, if they will succeed in selling 26 year old Kevin-Prince Boateng, Milan will be able to obtain immediately CSKA Moscow 27 year old Keisuke Honda, with whom they already have an agreement.
