Lugano agent confirms Juve talks

The agent of Diego Lugano has confirmed contact with Juventus, but adds that his client won't necessarily move to Italy.

The Uruguayan international has been linked with Juve, Lazio and Genoa in recent weeks, but only the Old Lady have been in touch with Juan Figer.

"Diego is a player who has had a lot of requests from a variety of European clubs," the representative told calciomercato.it.

"In Italy I have only spoken to the Bianconeri, but there is a concrete possibility that he will be playing for a non-Italian club next season.

"In any case, his future should be decided very soon."

Lugano, an imposing centre-back, currently plays his football in Turkey with Fenerbahce.
