Juventus set to sign Isla and Asamoah
Juventus are on the verge of completing a double swoop for Udinese stars Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, according to Tuttosport.
The Bianconeri traditionally do business with the Zebrette in every transfer window and this time is no different.
The Serie A champions opened negotiations to sign Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah few weeks ago and Tuttosport claims the agreement was reached yesterday.
The transfer is expected to be announced later today, just like the final terms of the deal taking the two midfielders to Turin.
According to the agreement, Juventus will pay around €15 million for 50% of the rights for the two players, while they will have the option to purchase the remaining rights before the end of next season.
That will allow the Bianconeri to sign two world-class players without spending too much of their transfer budget, which was the original plan.
Juventus tried to include a couple of youngsters in the transfer, but Udinese were only interested in the cash deal.
Niko Kranjcar reveals Dynamo Kiev move
Tottenham midfielder Niko Kranjcar has confirmed reports that he is set for Dynamo Kiev switch.
The Croatia international was mostly restricted to substitute appearances at White Hart Lane last season and has decided to leave Spurs in search of first team football.
Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev have acted swiftly and the player reveals the two clubs have already agreed on the transfer fee.
“The two clubs have reached an agreement, there are still some minor details left to be sorted, while I also have to agree personal terms,” Kranjcar told reporters at a training camp in Warka, Poland.
“I am personally not dealing with the transfer, as my representatives are in charge of everything, I am just focused on the national team.”
The 27-year-old joined Tottenham from Portsmouth in August 2009, but he never quite managed to get regular playing time at White Hart Lane.
Kranjcar featured in just 12 Premier League games this season, scoring one goal in the process.
Inter keeping tabs on Debuchy
France Football reports that Inter are very interested in signing Lille full-back Mathieu Debuchy.
The player, who started his career at Stade Lille Metropole, is seriously pondering his options after yet another impressive season with les Dogues.
Solid showings for Lille in Ligue 1 saw the 26-year-old linked with a number of high-profile sides, while the player also managed to prove his worth on international stage and is now considered a number one choice for the right-back position in the national team.
France Football has now revealed that Inter are also keen on the attacking full-back.
The Neroazzurri see Debuchy as a perfect replacement for Douglas Maicon, who could leave the club this summer, and they had the player watched in France’s final test for the Euro 2012 against Estonia.
After selling Eden Hazard to Chelsea, Lille officials will give their best to try and keep hold of other star players, but they would not be able to resist a big money offer.
Debuchy has surprised everyone with his scoring form this season, after bagging five goals in 32 Ligue 1 appearances.
