Juve not thinking of Biabiany – agent

The agent of Jonathan Biabiany doesn’t expect to see the player leave Parma for Juventus in January.

The wide player has been linked with the Old Lady of Italian football, but Giovanni Branchini doubts he is a real target.

“At the moment I have had no direct contact with anyone concerning the possibility that he will leave Parma in January,” the representative told Tele Radio Stereo.

“It is clear that he is someone with the characteristics of a player who could be of use to a lot of sides out there.

“However, for example I’m told that Juventus boss Antonio Conte is thinking about recovering Simone Pepe…”

The latter has now been out of action for a year after a number of problems relating to a muscle tear he suffered in pre-season of 2012-13.

Biabiany, 25, is a former Inter player who is co-owned with Sampdoria.
