Juve turn to Valencia and Perotti

Juventus are changing targets for the left flank, moving towards Manchester United's Antonio Valencia and Diego Perotti of Sevilla.

The Bianconeri had been focused on Michel Bastos for over a year, but it's reported new Coach Antonio Conte is not impressed with the Olympique Lyonnais man.

He would like Mirko Vucinic for the more advanced role, but Roma seem unlikely to sell the striker unless it is to the Premier League.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Juve are therefore turning their attention to new targets.

The first is Manchester United star Valencia, although there are numerous problems with his price-tag, wages and the fact he does not have an EU passport.

A more likely and affordable option is Sevilla's Argentine international Perotti.

The 22-year-old has an Italian passport and fits in with Conte's approach to the 4-4-2, which has often been called a 4-2-4.
