Cerci – Torino

Juventus are reportedly interested in bringing in Italian international forward Alessio Cerci from eternal rivals Torino next June.

The 26-year-old Roman is set to be one of the most sought after players of next summer’s transfer window, and currently sits fourth in the Capocannoniere charts with nine goals in 17 appearances following some glittering displays so far this season.

While he has already been closely linked with Premier League sides Manchester United and Arsenal, la Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Bianconeri are preparing to steal a march on their rivals by making Toro president Urbano Cairo an offer he may find difficult to refuse.

The Old Lady could offer both Ciro Immobile and Sebastian Giovinco plus cash for Cerci, in order to tempt the Granata into parting with their most prized asset.

He recently declared his ambition to secure a move to a side which can offer Champions League football, and also stated that he would like to play again for boyhood club Roma in the future.
