'Beck wants Juve move'

Andreas Beck has told Hoffenheim that he wants to join Italian giants Juventus this summer.

The right-back has been monitored by the Old Lady for the past year and a switch seems possible.

"The player can go to Turin," Hoffenheim sporting director Ernst Tanner is quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

"He has spoken with the new Coach Holger Stanislawski and reiterated that he prefers Juve, a great club who can ensure him Champions League football in the future.

"He wants to grow, in terms of his career and with regards to a personal experience."

Beck, a German international, joined his current club in 2008 from Stuttgart. His contract runs until 2012.

It's unclear how much the Old Lady will have to pay for the 24-year-old, with reports ranging from €5m to €8m.
