Manolo Gabbiadini is on the verge of becoming a Juventus player after on-going transfer talks with Atalanta.
The Old Lady want to sign the 20-year-old, but then immediately loan him out to a smaller club to gain experience.
Reports suggest that the Turin giants will sign a half-share in the Italian Under-21 international by offering €2.5m and 50 per cent of James Troisi – a midfielder who is set to arrive in Turin from Kayserispor first.
Gabbiadini, a striker, could be sent on loan to Bologna for the 2012-13 campaign.
“Juventus? I want to play for a club who can offer me some space on a weekly basis,” Gabbiadini stated earlier this month.
“I would have few chances in Bianconero, so I would prefer a loan experience at a club such as Bologna. I’d be happy with that destination.”
