Juve poach Cerci from Man City?

Just hours after reports Alessio Cerci was ready to join Manchester City, other sources claim Juventus are intercepting negotiations.

It was widely believed a deal was in the offing between Fiorentina and City for the winger.

There was a slight difference between offer and demand, as the Viola wanted €7m and were set to receive €6m.

However, Itasportpress claim this afternoon that Juventus are making a last-ditch attempt to poach Cerci.

New Coach Antonio Conte is a fan of the former Roma youth product and would like him in Turin.

It is usually difficult for Fiorentina to sell a player to their arch rivals Juventus, but in this case Cerci wishes to leave precisely because of his poor relationship with Viola fans.
