Gijon look at Motta

Spanish outfit Sporting Gijon are in negotiations with Juventus for out of favour defender Marco Motta.

The Liga outfit are interested in the right-back who hasn’t played for the Old Lady of Italian football this summer.

Motta, 25, was signed outright from Udinese after last season’s loan spell in which he made 32 appearances in all competition.

However, the former Roma and Udinese man hasn’t played a single-minute so far this season following the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner from Lazio.

Sporting want to take the player on loan with an option to buy outright at the end of the current campaign.

Juve are ready to do a deal, although they will want to bring in a replacement for Motta before letting him go.

Sevilla and Uruguayan international Martin Caceres, whose already played for Juve in the past, is being linked with a January switch to Turin.
