Juventus interest in Greek defender confirmed

Werder Bremen defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has confessed he is in talks with Italian giants Juventus.

The Bianconeri are searching for reinforcements in all areas of the team and they have singled out the Greek defender as one of their top summer targets.

The highly rated defender has in turn confirmed reports linking him with a move to Turin.

“I’m talking with Juventus,” Papastathopoulos told reporters in the mixed zone after the match against Russia.

The 24-year-old has spent last season at Werder on loan from Genoa, and the German club recently exercised the option to buy out his contract for €5.5 million.

That doesn’t mean the German club won’t be interested in negotiating a deal with Juventus and Tuttosport believes the player can be acquired for a fee of around €8 million.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos has featured in two Euro 2012 games for Greece, while missing the Czech Republic game through suspension.

The Euro 2004 winners produced a real coup by beating Russia to the second place in the group and are set to face Germany in the Euro 2012 quarter-finals.
