Alessandro Matri - Juventus are close to signing Juventus’ Italian international striker , with the Partenopei just waiting for a response from the player himself.

With at the helm, the port side club have been very active in this summer transfer market, and the Azzurri are still searching for a reliable centre-back and a backup striker for new forward signing .

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Napoli have reached an agreement with the Bianconeri for the 29-year-old hit-man, and the only thing now missing is the ‘yes’ from Matri.

A 5 year contract worth €3 million a season is on the table for the Juve front-man, and this could be enough to convince him, even though as part of the deal he would have to hand over his image rights to the Naples-based side.

Italian international Matri, who turned 29 on Monday, has managed 29 goals in 84 appearances for the Old Lady since making the move from in 2011.

  1. I don’t know why Juve would hand over Matri to their chief rival without getting anything but cash in return.

  2. Dominic Cullotta says:

    It’s just a dumb move all around. Leaving Juve where he is a back up to be a back up at Napoli isn’t gonna help his career any. Juve just wants the cash to buy Karlov or Zuniga

  3. Daniel says:

    Because juve need to offload strikers and Napoli gave a concrete offer for matri. We don’t want to lose him for nothing. At least were getting a good buck for him and possible a better relationship between the two clubs for future negotiations. Zuniga
