The 27-year-old Udinese forward had been named as a target by Bianconeri boss Gigi Del Neri.

However, Genoa were also interested and according to the latest reports from Sky Sport Italia, they have struck a deal for the loan with option to buy for €10m.

“At this moment the player is talking to Juve and Genoa, but I don't know what the developments will be,” agent Paolo Palermo told Pianetagenoa1893 earlier this evening.

Floro Flores and Marotta-nomics

Antonio Floro Flores looks on the brink of making a surprise move to Juventus. James Horncastle breaks down the detail

Antonio Floro Flores was in tears. He had made his debut as a second half substitute, replacing a worn out Simone Pepe in the 73rd minute of a tricky away fixture. Before the game, no one really expected all that much of the lithe young forward with the South American feet, but deep into stoppage time, he worked himself free in the box and put away a cross from Giorgio Chiellini to give his side a precious victory. Among the first players to congratulate him was none other than Alberto Aquilani.

Ventura: 'Ferocious' Bari for Juve

Bari already beat Juventus once this season and Giampiero Ventura asks his men to try it again “with ferocious determination and belief.”

They opened their campaign with a shock 1-0 victory at the Stadio San Nicola and now visit Turin in a desperate bid to climb off the foot of the table.

“From now until the end of the season we need humility, ferocious determination and belief,” said the Coach.

Del Neri admires 'efficient' Juve

Gigi Del Neri insists Juventus gave a fine performance that was “solid and efficient” despite only scraping past Bari.

It took a late Alberto Aquilani volley to turn the game in their favour for a 2-1 victory.

“The team played with great intensity, despite the strain of the Coppa Italia match with Catania on Thursday.

Storari won't be Buffon understudy

Gigi Buffon will make his Serie A comeback this weekend, but it's reported Marco Storari would rather leave than be on the Juventus bench.

The World Cup winning goalkeeper had not played since the World Cup against Paraguay on June 14, but made an impressive return in the Coppa Italia against Catania on Thursday.

It is widely believed Buffon is now ready for his first Serie A appearance since May, so he is set to start against Bari on Sunday afternoon.

Del Neri hands gloves to Buffon

Gigi Del Neri has confirmed Gianluigi Buffon will start against Bari, while he insists “Juventus cannot sign a new striker with every injury.”

The Bianconeri brought in Luca Toni after Fabio Quagliarella's surgery, but the newcomer has also been ruled out for a month with a knee ligament problem.

“The club knows what is to be done and I do not have to ask for anything,” said the Coach.
