Juve searching for Marrone solution

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has confirmed they are trying to find Luca Marrone a new club.

The central midfielder, 23, is rated highly by boss Antonio Conte in Turin, but he isn’t guaranteed playing time at the Juventus Stadium.

“Marrone has the need and desire to play with regularity in another team,” the transfer official told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’ll have to see what the best destination is for him before the market closes, but right now I can’t tell you where that will be.”

The Italian champions reportedly value the player, one goal in 15 Serie A games for the Bianconeri, at around the €10m mark.

He’s been linked with the likes of Inter, Fiorentina, Parma, Everton and Monaco this summer. Cagliari became the latest club to be paired with him yesterday.
