Juve & Palermo chase Peluso

Juventus and Palermo are reportedly both keen on the signature of Atalanta defender Federico Peluso.

The former Italian Under-21 international spent the majority of his career in the lower divisions before a move to Bergamo in 2009. So impressive has he been with the Orobici that he won his first senior Italy cap in the friendly against England in Bern last week.

Juve have apparently been monitoring the 28-year-old’s progress for over a year now, and are thought to be considering making a bid in the next week.

But according to Tuttomercatoweb, Palermo's interest is also serious, as Coach Giuseppe Sannino searches for an experienced full back to fill the void left by Federico Balzaretti's move to Roma.
