Giaccherini ignores Premier League

Emanuele Giaccherini’s agent assured he will “stay at Juventus” despite interest from the Premier League.

The versatile midfielder can play in several different roles and impressed so much at the Confederations Cup that he was included in FIFA’s Top XI of the tournament.

“It was very exciting seeing him placed alongside champions like Neymar and Andre Iniesta,” agent Fulvio Valcareggi told TuttoJuve.

“He proved his qualities to the whole world, whereas before they were only known in Italy. In the space of a few years Emanuele earned his spot as a protagonist with Juve and the Nazionale thanks to hard work.”

The tournament in Brazil also caught the eye of Premier League sides with offers coming in from Sunderland and Newcastle.

“The great performance at the Confederations Cup certainly caught the attention of international clubs, but Emanuele is happy at Juventus.

“In Turin there have always been signs of respect and admiration for Emanuele, so there are absolutely no doubts. We want Giaccherini to stay with Juventus.”
