Sion admit to Del Piero desire

Swiss outfit FC Sion are interested in signing Alessandro Del Piero once his contract at Juventus expires.

The almost 37-year-old will leave Turin once his deal expires in 2012 and the club formed in 1909 are keen on netting his signature.

"Del Piero is a player who I really like," Sion President Christian Constantin exclusively told TMW. "I was already updated on his situation last year.

"Now, if Juventus no longer want him, I'm really interested. I'd love to bring him to Sion, I'll speak to the player and a solution is possible."

If Del Piero was to play on, it was generally thought that he would move to America or Asia – possibly Japan.

"I'll do everything possible to sign him," Constantin continued.

"I prefer to not comment on the economical aspect of such a deal though, I'd prefer to just concentrate on the player."

Del Piero, a World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, has been at Juventus since his 1993 switch from Serie B side Padova.
