Marrone a wanted man

The representative of Luca Marrone expects Juventus to be inundated with requests for his client at the end of the season.

“He had a lot of offers during the last transfer session,” Beppe Bozzo told TMW on Tuesday. “We’ll see what happens in June.”

Marrone is considered highly by Juventus boss Antonio Conte, a Coach who has transformed him from a midfielder to a centre-back this term.

However, first team opportunities have been difficult to offer the youngster seeing as he has only played in 12 games across Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League.

“He happily accepted to act as the reserve for Leonardo Bonucci in that role, despite the fact that he plays in a different position for the Italian Under-21 side,” the agent continued.

“He recently turned 23, he has ambitions to grow and play. Let’s see what happens, but I think Juve will find it tough to satisfy all the clubs who will make an approach.”
