Lisandro Lopez on Juventus radar
Juventus are set to launch an assault on Lyon star Lisandro Lopez, according to Tuttosport.
With Nicklas Bendtner set to miss next three months of action, Bianconeri boss Antonio Conte is eager to sign a new striker in January.
Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims the Old Lady will attempt to lure Lisandro Lopez from Stade Gerland.
Lopez, 29, has one and a half years left on his deal at Lyon, and he is believed to be looking for a new challenge.
The French giants were holding out for €15 million last summer, but the forward can now be acquired for much less.
Lopez’s representative recently revealed that his client planned to end his career at Racing Club, but there is every chance he will embark on another last challenge before he returns to the club where it all started for him.
Since joining Lyon from Porto in the summer of 2009, the Argentine has scored 54 goals in 102 Ligue 1 appearances.
Tottenham keen on HSV’s Son
German newspaper Bild reports that Tottenham are weighing up move for Hamburger SV starlet Heung-Min Son.
Spurs have just agreed a summer deal with Schalke hotshot Lewis Holtby, and they are now closing in on yet another Bundesliga star.
Bild has suggested that the White Hart Lane outfit are showing interest in HSV forward Heung-Min Son.
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas believes the South Korean is a perfect player to provide competition for Aaron Lennon on the right flank, although it remains to be seen whether Spurs will be making an official bid in January.
Son is widely regarded as one of the most talented players in German Bundesliga, and has been in scintillating form this season.
Even if Hamburger chiefs are not interested in selling, Bild believes the player, who has a deal until June 2014 at Imtech Arena, can be acquired for €10 million.
Nene confirms Santos switch
Paris Saint-Germain forward Nene will join Santos in the January transfer window, according to the player’s representative.
Even if his deal at Parc des Princes does not expire until June, the 31-year-old will join the Brazilian giants on a free transfer as PSG officials agreed to terminate his contract.
L’Equipe understands that he will sign a two-and-a-half year deal worth around €4 million per campaign.
Nene’s representative Gilvan Costa confirmed the transfer was set to be completed in the coming days.
“The club is really close to what we wanted,” Costa explained to L’Equipe in Brazil.
Santos turned their attention towards Nene after it became clear Milan forward Robinho would not be returning to the club.
Nene has long ago expressed his desire to return to Brazil and he is likely to be delighted with a switch to Santos.
