Juve urged to increase Rossi offer

Juventus have been told to up their offer for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi by the player's agent.

Juve remain in talks with the Primera Division club as they seek to take Italy international Rossi back to Serie A but Federico Pastorello claims the Turin side have yet to meet Villarreal's asking price.

"Villarreal await the right offer,'' Pastorello told Gazzetta dello Sport. "One that reflects the value of Giuseppe. There's a lot of money at stake and I believe the asking price is correct considering the value of the player. It is not disproportionate.''

Juventus have also been linked with Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero this summer but it seems they are closest to snapping up Rossi, if a deal can be struck for a player whose buy-out clause stands at 33million euros.

"Juventus and Villarreal are discussing the financial figures and I await developments,'' added Pastorello. "But if the right offer does not arrive, I am in agreement with the club (Villarreal) that he will stay.

"I have spoken to Giuseppe this morning and he is calm. He is not anxious.''

Former Manchester United and Parma striker Rossi, who is under contract with the Valencian outfit until June 2016, joined Villarreal today on their pre-season tour of Ireland.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a fine season in Spain last term, scoring 32 goals in all competitions for the Yellow Submarine.
