‘Lodi interest is to be expected’

The agent of Catania’s Francesco Lodi says interest in his client is “normal”, but he’s not been contacted by any other clubs.

Reports over the last few days have suggested that champions Juventus could be pondering a bid for the deep-lying playmaker.

However, talking to ItaSportPress, Alessandro Moggi has been unable to confirm any contact with the Old Lady.

“As far as I am concerned, Lodi is a Catania player,” stated the representative. “And he has a contract with the club.

“We all know how well he has done this season and it is only normal that there could be sides keen on him, but there is nothing right now.”

Lodi, 28, has scored nine goals in 37 games for the Elefanti this season. He moved to the Massimino in the summer after spells at Empoli, Udinese and Frosinone.

The midfielder is tied to the Sicilian outfit until June 2015.
