Udinese have told Juventus that they’ll have to show some patience with regard to their courtship of Kwadwo Asamoah.
The Old Lady are keen on the midfielder as they look to strengthen the squad ahead of next season’s Champions League assault.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport says that Udinese are in no rush to sort out the 23-year-old’s future.
Udinese will thus only consider their options when it comes to the player, one valued at €18m, much later into the summer.
Asamoah scored three goals in 31 games for the Stadio Friuli outfit. It is by no means certain that they will sell given that they too have qualified for the Champions League.
Juventus may look to convince the Udine side by offering them the services of midfielder Saphir Taider.
The Turin giants own a 50 per cent share in the 20-year-old player with Bologna.
