Giaccherini set for Juve stay

The agent of Emanuele Giaccherini has rubbished reports that the Juventus man could end up at Lazio or Genoa in the summer.

The versatile midfielder, part-owned with Cesena, isn’t guaranteed first team football in Turin following his 2011 arrival.

However, agent Furio Valcareggi has told Tutto Juve that the player will continue his career in Turin.

“There is absolutely no truth in the Genoa and Lazio stories,” the representative stated. “It’s pure fantasy.

“Giaccherini is really happy at Juventus and he has a four-year contract. The club don’t intend to let him go and the player doesn’t want to leave.

“Whoever would want Giaccherini would have to pay around €10m and I don’t think that Genoa or Lazio are prepared to make that kind of investment.”

Juventus and Cesena will have to hold talks at the end of the campaign to discuss the 26-year-old’s future.

Giaccherini has appeared in 17 League games so far this season, scoring one goal in the process. He has two goals in four Coppa Italia ties.
