Winter Mercato UPDATE Juventus

5 Jan

De ceglie MUST LEAVE…Genoa and Werder Bremen seem interested. The Germans are also peeking at Motta. With Sorensen interesting other bundesliga teams (a shame…for I have always admired his talents, and feel that he could mature into a very solid CB or RB). As for the talked of partnership with Werder, their chairman recently mentioned that he was focused more on bringing the thing to life in the Summer, not January. In terms of the movement of players, some of our fringe players or youth prospects could head there.

The giant Senegalese striker we picked up from FC Bra last Summer, Mbaye Diagne, is moving to Belgian side, Lierse, on loan after failing to make an appearance for Ravanelli’s hapless Ajaccio side, due to a lack of the required games for his national side.

Romanian U21 international goalkeeper Branescu remains on loan at Juve Stabia, where he fell out of favour earlier this season after a nasty run of four games which saw 10 goals fly past him, may be given a reprieve with news that his side’s number one between the sticks, 37 year old keeper, Calderoni may leave for Reggiana (where De Silvestro and Cavion have been playing regularly, both players are there on loan from us).

Pol Garcia – Could he be prised from our primavera??

Bari are showing interest in Primavera Captain CB, Spanish Pol Garcia, but I expect him to remain with Zanchetta’s squad until at least the Summer…Could be an interesting move though, if he had a good chance of getting games.

The rather sinister looking, dolph lundgren doppelganger, Pawel Stolarski

We have apparently made a bid for 17 year old Paweł Stolarski, who already plays for the Polish U19 team at RB. His domestic club is Wisla Krakow (POL) where Pawel is a first team regular. Big lad at 1.81m.

Our next youth target is front-man Richairo Zivkovi, 17 years old, who plays for Groningen of Holland. Also part of the Dutch U19 set-up. He has netted 5 in 17 (5 starts) for their senior squad this season and stands a useful 1.86m.

Moving to another continent, we are rumoured to be gazing our covetous eyes upon…Gabriel Boschilia (17, midfielder, Sao Paulo also Brazil U17 regular, scored 6 and made 3 assists at last year’s 2013 U17 world cup)…and Douglas Baggio of Flamengo who has scored too many goals at youth level (72 in 52 games) to go unnoticed by many top teams such as ourselves and Chelsea. Named after our dear Roberto, il Divin’ Codino, young Douglas certainly looks a wonderful prospect…

I almost forgot…the African Dane who recently attended a trial with us and impressed mightily. Pione Sisto, 18, played as a right midfielder in Denmark for FC Midtjylland. Expect to see him signed up soonish.

That should do for now…other than to mention, that I suspect Ouasim Bouy, now fully recovered from his horrible injury of early 2013, will be heading out on loan this month, to Brescia perhaps, to continue where he left off. Although Novara have also been sniffing around of late. It will be very interesting to see if he can catch up and progress.

Wishing you all a delightful domenica.
forza Juve
