Juve target Borriello loan

Serie A leaders Juventus are ready to make Roma an offer to take Marco Borriello on loan during the January transfer window.

Borriello is looking for a capital exit after failing to break into the first team plans of Spanish boss Luis Enrique.

The 29-year-old, signed outright by Roma in the summer for €10m after his one season on loan from Milan, has started just two Serie A games this term.

The former Genoa player has failed to score in his seven appearances which have totalled just 231 minutes of action.

Borriello has been linked with a variety of clubs, but the Old Lady had not been associated with any widespread reports until today.

Juventus actually made an effort to sign Borriello from Milan in the summer of 2010, but he opted to move to the Stadio Olimpico instead.

The Old Lady then decided to sign Fabio Quagliarella from Napoli.

It’s unclear whether Roma are willing to loan Borriello to Juve, with some reports suggesting that the Giallorossi want to sell him outright for around €12m.
