Conte to make Pepe decision

Juventus are waiting for news from Coach Antonio Conte on whether to sign Simone Pepe on a permanent basis.

The Bianconeri took him on loan from Udinese this season, using the versatile Italy international as full-back, winger and forward in different games.

Pepe arrived on the agreement that Juve would pay €7.5m after a year, but the club seem to have changed their mind.

If Conte has decided against keeping hold of Pepe, then the Turin giants would still hand over the cash.

However, they would immediately push to sell or loan Pepe elsewhere this summer.

Among the clubs linked with him are Fiorentina, Lazio and Genoa.

New Coach Conte is also thought to have rejected Udinese midfielder Gokhan Inler after a deal had been struck with the Friulani.
