Juve draw up Nainggolan plan

Juventus have made Cagliari an offer for the highly-rated Radja Nainggolan, according to the L’Unione Sarda newspaper.

The report claims that Juve director general Beppe Marotta has been in touch with the Sardinian outfit this week about the Belgium-born player.

He apparently offered the club the contract of Albin Ekdal, currently at Cagliari on loan, and cash in a deal worth around €15m in total.

The 23-year-old is a promising midfielder who has also caught the attention of Italian champions Milan. He’s scored one goal in 16 League appearances this season.

A January deal does seem unlikely though for the player who has Indonesian roots. A summer switch is being suggested as a much more realistic prospect.

Juventus, who will face Cagliari on Sunday, are also believed to be showing an interest in Rossoblu defender Davide Astori.
