Juventus start Immobile talks

Juventus will hold talks with Genoa on Tuesday in an effort to snatch back young striker Ciro Immobile.

The Italian champions own a 50 per cent share in the Under-21 international and want him in Turin for the second half of the season.

Juve have turned their attention to the former Pescara player after Bologna refused to return Manolo Gabbiadini.

The latter, part-owned by Juventus and Atalanta, is on a season-long loan deal at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Immobile yesterday admitted that he feels ready to play for Juventus after learning his trade at smaller clubs in the past few years.

Immobile is valued at around €5m and could arrive in a deal that sees midfielder Simone Padoin head to the Stadio Ferraris in exchange.

The Juventus youth team player, five goals in 19 games this term, has worked with Conte in the past at Siena and during a pre-season with the Old Lady.
