Marrone set for Juventus talks

The agent of Luca Marrone will discuss the youngster’s future with Juventus officials on Thursday.

The Italian Under-21 international is rated highly by the Turin outfit, but he has struggled for regular action over the last few seasons.

Marrone is a central midfielder, but he was transformed into a centre-back by Antonio Conte this term to act as cover for Leonardo Bonucci.

Conte is a fan of the 23-year-old, but Marrone was used in only 15 games this term. He featured in just six during 2011-12.

Marrone, represented by Beppe Bozzo, is understood to have admirers in the form of Parma, Fiorentina and Sampdoria.

Juventus are likely to only consider a loan or a co-ownership deal for the boy who was born in Turin.
