Juventus’ Isla a wanted man

One of Mauricio Isla’s representatives has hinted that the midfielder will be leaving Juventus this summer.

The Chilean was signed from Udinese last summer in a co-ownership deal, but he was used in only 11 League games after returning from knee ligament damage.

“We are not satisfied with how Juventus have dealt with him this season,” Claudio Vagheggi, who looks after the 24-year-old with Leo Rodriguez, told calciomercato.it.

“We’ve already let the Turin club know our opinions.

“Mauricio’s priority for next season is to be a protagonist because it is World Cup year, a very important objective for him.

“There are offers from some of the biggest Italian clubs, but we are not lacking bids from abroad either where Isla is being followed by two important Spanish clubs.

“We need to discuss the situation with Juventus to evaluate the best alternatives.”

It is understood that the wide-man is being looked at by Fiorentina, Inter and Napoli in Serie A.

Reports suggest that he could be offered to Fiorentina as part of the deal that could see Stevan Jovetic leave the Viola for Turin.

Meanwhile, the rumour mill this morning is claiming that Isla may be offered to Inter in exchange for Italian international defender Andrea Ranocchia.
