Immobile up for Juventus challenge

Genoa striker Ciro Immobile says he would be ready to return to Juventus should the Bianconeri turn to him during the January transfer window.

Could Ciro Immobile be set for a return to his old club?

Juve’s need for a striker has been well documented, with the Turin club having been linked to a whole host of attackers, including the likes of Didier Drogba and Fernando Llorente.

Director general Beppe Marotta is keen to add another attacker in order to ease the goal-scoring burden on the squad’s current crop of frontmen.

Immobile, 22, who is currently co-owned by Genoa and Juventus, now appears to be the preferred choice of the Italian champions, having been priced out of moves for bigger names.

“I know that I am being talked about in the transfer market,” said the striker who played for current Juventus boss Antonio Conte during their time with Siena during the 2009-10 season.

“However, I spoke with president Enrico Preziosi before Christmas and he told me that I would be staying at Genoa. Juve? It would be nice to go there because I would be fighting for the Scudetto and not Serie A safety!”

Immobile is seen as a cheaper option to some of the other strikers the club have been linked with, although Llorente is widely expected to sign once his contract with Athletic Bilbao expires in the summer.

“It is something of an exaggeration to see my name linked with those of Drogba and Llorente but I would be ready for Juventus,” Immobile said. “It would be a really important opportunity for me.”

The youngster is a hot prospect on the peninsula after netting 28 goals for Pescara last term and has added five more during the current campaign.
