Juve: Van Persie to Torres?

Juventus are said to be switching their transfer interest from Robin Van Persie to Fernando Torres this summer.

The Bianconeri have made it clear they are looking for a new striker who is a ‘top player’ and can lead the line in the Champions League.

So far Van Persie had been the prime objective, especially as he is in the final year of his contract with Arsenal and is looking for a more ambitious side.

According to the Daily Mail, Juve are turning their focus towards Chelsea hitman Torres, who has struggled since coming to Stamford Bridge.

However, it is thought to be an unlikely deal to go through and one that is beyond the Juventus budget right now.

Instead, the Turin giants hope Van Persie’s price-tag can be lowered by his poor performances at Euro 2012 for Holland, where he missed several sitters.

The Dutch went out in the first round of the tournament after three consecutive defeats.
