Juventus want Armero – agent

The agent of Pablo Armero has confirmed that Juventus are trying to do a deal with Udinese for his client.

The Old Lady have been linked with the left-sided player, but reaching an agreement with the Stadio Friuli outfit is proving problematic.

“Juventus want Armero on loan with an option to buy,” Claudio Vagheggi told Sport Italia. “But Udinese want to sell the player and bring in cash.

“The player agrees with the stance of the club and he is waiting for the situation to evolve.”

The Colombian, 25, can play as a left-back or as a wing-back, making him an ideal fit for boss Antonio Conte’s 4-3-3 and 3-5-2 plans in Turin.

The two clubs have already done some business this summer after Juve netted Kwadwo Asamoah and Mauricio Isla on a co-ownership basis.

Armero has also been paired with Napoli.
