Barnetta on Juve radar

Swiss international Tranquillo Barnetta is the latest midfielder to be paired with Italian giants Juventus.

The 26-year-old could be the man who the Turin outfit turn to in order to resolve their problems on the left-hand side of midfield.

Barnetta is an attractive transfer proposition as he has less than a year left to run on his contract with German club Bayer Leverkusen.

Juve have already done business with the Bundesliga outfit this summer by netting Arturo Vidal for €10.5m.

Barnetta, formerly of Hannover, is said to be available for a fee in the region of €7m.

The player has also caught the attention of Premiership side Newcastle.

Juve have already bought two Swiss players since the end of last season in the form of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Reto Ziegler.
