Floro Flores set for Juve

Juventus will make Antonio Floro Flores of Udinese their next January signing, reports in Italy are suggesting.

The Turin giants have admitted that they are looking for a second striker to replace the injured Fabio Quagliarella, who is out for the season, and the former Under-21 international is a possible solution.

The forward has been made available for transfer and was also heavily linked with a move to Genoa and Bologna this month.

However, according to stories in the peninsula, it seems that Floro Flores will become Juve's second New Year signing after Luca Toni.

Given that Toni picked up an injury in last night's 2-0 Coppa Italia win over Catania, Juve will now accelerate talks with Udinese.

It's understood that a deal could be made official on Monday once all the terms of the move have been finalised.

It's being suggested that Juve will net Floro Flores on a six-month loan at a cost of €1.5m.

Brazil and Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano is also being suggested as a possible Juve target this morning by other reports, although the cost involved in signing him is high.

The Spanish club would want around €10m for the South American which means that Juve would have to sell before they could buy.

Amauri and Momo Sissoko are men who Juve could cash in on – or even players that may be offered to Sevilla in exchange for the attacker.
