Lichtsteiner to stay at Juventus

Kwadwo Asamoah is reportedly set for Galatasaray, but Juventus have asked Stephan Lichtsteiner to stay.

The two full-backs have been linked with an exit, but a deal for Asamoah has been delayed by the situation with Leonardo Spinazzola.

Juve want to bring him back early from his loan, but Atalanta won’t release him until they’ve secured a replacement.

According to today’s Corriere dello Sport. Orobici are close to a deal for Genoa’s Diego Laxalt, so once he signs Spinazzola will be free to return to Turin.

That would then free Asamoah to move to Turkey, with a deal agreed for €7-8m.

The newspaper reports that Lichtsteiner will stay, however, despite the Swiss international having agreed a deal with Nice.

It’s thought the Bianconeri spoke to the right-back and he is now happy to remain in Turin for the final year of his contract.
