Juventus are working on getting one of Ciro Immobile and Manolo Gabbiadini back to Turin, according to Tuttosport.
Given that Nicklas Bentdner will spend at least two more months on the sidelines and that Mirko Vucinic is struggling through an ankle problem, the Bianconeri are eager to sign another forward in the January transfer window.
After failing in their attempts to sign a world-class striker, general manager Beppe Marotta has turned his attention towards two players co-owned by Juventus.
The first one is Ciro Immobile, who is co-owned by Genoa, and he is more realistic option of the two.
Juventus have long ago established great relations with the Rossoblu and they hope to persuade president Enrico Preziosi into selling the other half of Immobile’s contract.
The other target is Manolo Gabbiadini, co-owned by Atalanta but on loan at Bologna, but his situation is much more complicated.
Bologna are not willing to let the player leave amidst their fight for Serie A survival, even if they already have a number of former Juventus players in the squad.
Juventus officials took advantage of yesterday’s Lega Calcio meeting to open negotiations for both players, and it remains to be seen whether at least one of the strikers will be moving to Turin this January.
