Juve to meet with Aguero next week
Juventus are closing in on wantaway Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero and will meet with the Argentine's representatives next week in order to thrash out a deal.
Juve have already splashed over 35 million euros in securing loanees Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella, Simone Pepe and Marco Motta, but have made Aguero their top priority ahead of the new season according to sporting director Giuseppe Marotta.
"We will probably meet with Aguero's agents in the middle of next week," Marotta told Gazzetta Dello Sport. "He is a great player - young but already with a lot of experience. It is our objective to sign him - we really like the player."
Marotta had earlier spoken of his admiration for Aguero and Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi: "Both are talented and capable of making the difference," he said. "They both match up with the profile of the kind of player we are looking for."
Aguero, who will play for Argentina at the Copa America, has been linked with a move since admitting he wants to quit Atletico, although it has always been thought he would opt to stay in Spain.
Atletico's sporting director Jose Luis Caminero has set a deadline of two weeks for Aguero's future to be settled one way or another as the club are believed to be looking at Rossi themselves to replace the Argentine.
