Despite a short spell at Siena, 27-year-old De Ceglie has spent much of his career in Turin but could now be set to leave the Serie A champions in search of regular first-team football, possibly for Genoa.
“Genoa is a prestigious club in a great city with one of the most passionate fanbases in all of Europe,” the wing-back’s agent, Carlo Pallavicino, told Calciomercato.com.
“Paolo is also very fond of Gian Piero Gasperini. However, he was born and raised at Juve, the side he has always supported, and has a strong rapport with Antonio Conte. It’d be very tough for him to leave this club, even if he hasn’t played as much as usual.”
Juventus right-back Marco Motta also looks set to leave the club, with Livorno and Werder Bremen said to be interested.
The 27-year-old, who has won one cap for Italy, has spent time on loan at both Catania and Bologna in the past two seasons and has only made two appearances for the Old Lady this season.
