No Juve or Viola for Giaccherini

The agent of Emanuele Giaccherini has cooled speculation that the Cesena man is wanted by Fiorentina and Juventus.

"There is nothing new to report right now, the only certainty is that he won't be renewing his contract," stated Furio Valcareggi to calciomercato.it.

"The Juventus and Fiorentina options are obviously liked by the player, but there has been no contact with either of those clubs."

Tuttosport today claimed that Juve boss Antonio Conte had asked the club for the Cesena attacking winger.

Giaccherini, whose contract expires in June 2012, scored seven goals in 33 Serie A games last term.

He had never previously appeared in the Italian top flight.
