Pepe boost for Juventus

Simone Pepe will resume full training again with Juventus this week after months on the sidelines, reports suggest.

The attacking midfielder has yet to make an appearance this season for the Italian champions because of a fitness issue.

Pepe has basically been out of action since he picked up a left thigh muscle strain in the Trofeo TIM tournament on July 21.

The 29-year-old was a key figure for the Old Lady last term, especially in the 4-3-3 system, as he scored six goals in 31 League games.

Pepe could be named in the squad to take on Napoli on October 20 when Serie A resumes after the international break.
