Giovinco can’t wait for Juve return

Sebastian Giovinco admits he’s keen to prove himself at Juventus again given his likely arrival from Parma.

The Old Lady are expected to buy Parma’s 50 per cent share in him this week given that he is wanted for next season’s Champions League campaign.

“I’m really very happy,” the 25-year-old told Tuttosport. “For now I’m just concentrating on Euro 2012 with Italy, but I can’t wait to go back to Juventus.”

Giovinco, 25, is a product of the club’s youth system. He was loaned out to Empoli in 2007-08, but returned to base after an impressive spell in Tuscany.

However, after two difficult seasons in Turin, he was sent out on loan to Parma in 2010. A year later they signed half of the player for around €3.75m.

He scored 15 goals in Serie A this term, tempting the Old Lady to buy him back in a deal that is expected to cost them about €11m.
