Juventus has recovered remarkably from the Calciopoli scandal and it clinched a Champions League spot in its first season back in Seria A. Now, its target will be to make the team strong enough to resist in Europe’s top club competition and they have lined up several reinforcements ahead of next season.
After bringing in Brazilian striker Amauri from Palermo, they will further reinforce their attacking options with one of: Klass-Jan Huntelaar, Fabio Quagliarella or Bafetimbi Gomis. The Dutch forward is thought to be the priory for the Bianconeri, reports Goal.com. But it is thought that Real Madrid and Manchester United would also move for the prolific Dutch striker.
Fabio Quagliarella was last year linked to Manchester United as well, but nothing materialized and now he finds himself as a target for Juventus – should they not manage snatch Huntelaar. Quagliarella scored 12 times in Seria A this past season and has also attracted the interest of AC Milan.
The third option for Juventus is thought to be Bafetimbi Gomis, according to Goal.com. The French striker, who has be likened to Dider Drogba due to his pace and amazing strength, has just signed a new deal with St. Etienne after having had a brilliant season in Ligue 1.
It is not known how much Juventus is willing to pay for their striker, but they should move quickly as each of their three targets have attracted the interest of other top teams around Europe. And, with all three due to be involved at the upcoming Euro 2008, their prices could sky-rocket should they have a good competition.
