Aguero on Juve list

Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero could be one of Juventus' big summer swoops, the Italian media is speculating.

The Old Lady are set to have their transfer spending power ahead of the new campaign increased by a cash injection from parent company Exor.

After revolutionising the squad last summer, director general Beppe Marotta says that the plan this time around is to sign two or three big name players.

One of them, if reports are to be believed, could be Argentine attacking sensation 'Kun' Aguero.

Born in Quilmes, Buenos Aires, the No 10 is just 22 and has been in Europe with Atletico since 2006 after starting his career at Independiente.

Aguero has been linked with numerous top European sides over the years, but has up until now remained at the Liga club.

Netting Aquero won't be easy for the Old Lady though. He's contracted to his current outfit until 2014 and is valued at around €35m.

Despite the stories, it's unclear whether Juve are willing to spend that amount on a new striker given that they are likely to purchase Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri.

Both are currently with the Turin club on loan from Napoli and Cagliari respectively, and will cost a further €11m and €15m to keep at Vinovo.
