Juve target Bologna's Diamanti

Juventus are back in the transfer market after Emanuele Giaccherini's pending move to Sunderland - and Alessandro Diamanti tops their wishlist.

Alessandro Diamanti will be key for Bologna this season
Diamanti could be on his way to Juve

However, Diamanti's club, Bologna, have warned that they will not wait until the end of the transfer window for an offer.

Giaccherini, 28, is on the verge of completing a move to the Black Cats, with the two clubs in agreement and Juve coach Antonio Conte resigned to losing the 28-year-old.

Bologna president Albano Guaraldi said his club could not wait until the transfer window closes, adding: "We have not received an actual offer and, at this point, selling him is quite unthinkable, also because that would mean revolutionising the squad.

"In January, I promised Alino [Diamanti] that I'd let him go if we got a decent offer in the early part of the transfer window. Now that time is expiring, and we are not going to go searching for somebody to buy him."

Diamanti, 30, is regarded as a central component of a Rossoblu side that will have Rolando Bianchi leading the forward line next season.

The former Manchester City striker, who has arrived from Torino, told a press conference: "I've got so much motivation to pay back the faith which has been shown in me by the president and the coach.

"Bologna have had many great strikers, and this makes it even more of a challenge for me. I hope I can go down that same road in the best possible way, which would be hugely satisfying for me."

Bianchi scored 73 goals for Torino, putting him in their top ten all-time goalscorers. His contract expired at the end of last month, and he bade a tearful farewell after the final game of last season against Catania.

"I spent five magnificent years with Toro, but they were also difficult in terms of the pressure," he said. "I'm pleased with this choice. I've left my heart at Torino, finishing there in the best way possible. For me, this was the right time to start over again."
