Decision day for Giovinco?

Reports in Italy are suggesting that Juventus will agree a deal with Parma later today to take back full ownership of Sebastian Giovinco.

The Italian international is contracted to both clubs, but a Stadio Tardini exit is expected after his stellar showings in Serie A 2011-12.

Despite interest from outfits such as Inter, it seems that Parma are ready to do a deal with Juventus by the end of Tuesday.

Whispers are claiming that Juventus will pay around €12m for Parma’s half share in the forward after the Gialloblu initially asked for closer to €15m.

Juventus could cover that cost partly with cash and partly with the inclusion of other players within the deal.

The 25-year-old moved to the Ducali in the summer of 2010 on a loan move. A year later, Parma bought a 50 per cent cut in him for just €3m.

Giovinco, who scored 15 goals in 36 League games this term, has apparently been requested by Juventus boss Antonio Conte.

The Coach wants a reinforced squad for the Old Lady’s return to the Champions League in 2012-13.

Giovinco is currently with Italy at Euro 2012.
