Juve close in on Giaccherini

The agents of Cesena's Emanuele Giaccherini have arrived in Turin ahead of transfer talks with Juventus.

Furio Valcareggi and Giulio Marinelli will reportedly meet with Juve officials in the next 24 hours in an effort to conclude talks.

It's no secret that Bianconeri boss Antonio Conte has requested the player and Cesena are ready to do a deal.

Giaccherini could be used on the left-hand side of midfield by Conte in his offensive 4-4-2 system.

There were suggestions that the Old Lady could send Jorge Martinez to the Stadio Manuzzi on loan as part of the transfer.

However, the Uruguayan may not be keen on that option. As a result, Juve may offer Cristian Pasquato instead.
