Malouda on Juve list

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has admitted an interest in Florent Malouda of Chelsea.

"Unfortunately Malouda is not ours, but he is certainly an interesting player," the official commented.

"A lot of clubs have a lot of different transfer objectives during this particular time of the season," he added.

"It's clear that we too are looking to pick up those pieces that we are missing."

The 31-year-old, who is said to be looking for a contract extension up until 2014, is being linked with a Stamford Bridge exit.

The left-midfielder could be acquired for as little as £5m.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Old Lady are really that keen given that they are on the verge of signing wingers Emanuele Giaccherini and Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia.
