Juventus keen on ‘Bosman’ Soriano

Sampdoria youngster Roberto Soriano is on the transfer radar of Italian champions Juventus.

The 21-year-old is attracting the interest of a number of clubs given that his contract at Doria is set to expire in the summer. He would thus be available on a free.

An Italian Under-21 international, Soriano grew up in the Bayern Munich youth system before his 2009 switch to Samp.

The Marassi outfit turned down a €1.5m offer from Cagliari for the player at the start of this season.

Juventus directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici know the youngster well given that they were responsible for his move to his present club.

Soriano has appeared in 13 League games so far this season, although he has only started five of those from the first minute.
