Juve to keep Quagliarella, says agent

The representative of Fabio Quagliarella is convinced that Juventus have no intention of selling him during the summer.

Quagliarella’s future is in doubt given that he is not guaranteed a starting shirt at the club – even if he is the Old Lady’s top scorer this season.

“Despite all the market rumours, I think that Juventus are ultra-convinced of keeping him,” Beppe Bozzo told TMW on Tuesday.

“He has shown that he can be counted on, that he always responds every time that he is called upon.

“He’s reached the maturity that you need that allows you to continue playing for a great side.”

The 29-year-old has started just 11 League games this term and the club have already wrapped up the signing of Fernando Llorente from Athletic Bilbao.

“The extra competition will be a problem for all Juventus’ forwards,” Bozzo continued. “All are under discussion with Antonio Conte in charge.

“The Coach has done well to rotate his attackers and not assure anyone a starting shirt. If new forwards arrive then that will not only be a problem for Fabio…”

The former Napoli man has eight goals in 19 Serie A games, while he has four in five Champions League appearances.
