Liverpool is reportedly interested in Sebastian Giovinco of Juventus. The Italian forward is struggling to keep a permanent spot in the starting lineup of the coach Antonio Conte which can open up a chance for the Premier League side to arrive and sign him up in the summer.
Brendan Rodgers sees Giovinco as a player that can link the midfielders with the forwards with the possibility of even transforming the performer of Juventus into a playmaker and Iaso Aspas as well as Fabio Borini could be used as bait in order to lure Giovinco from Juventus if it is necessary.
Iago Aspas made his move to Liverpool on June of 2013 but has not made his presence felt on his new club which is why he can be used as an incentive for Juventus to offload Giovinco.
Another player that is on the watch-list of a Premier League club is Martin Caceres as Manchester United are in search of someone that can replace Nemanja Vidic as the Serbian defender will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
Reports emerging from Italy are claiming that David Moyes is impressed with the versatility that the Uruguayan defender is capable of implementing when playing on the pitch as he can play as a right-back as well as on the centre of the defence if necessary.
Martin Caceres joined Juventus on January of 2012 but is enjoying more time on the sidelines of the Italian team than on the actual playing grounds which can allow David Moyes on offering the defender with a chance on joining a squad where he can become a consistent performer.
The future of Rio Ferdinand is uncertain and Moyes is desperately looking for a player that can not only fill in the space left by Vidic but by Ferdinand as well.
Carlos Tevez has not been selected for the Argentina national team in the last few months and it has been reported that he has fell out with manager Alejandro Sabella. His exclusion from the team is extremely surprising given that he has been in fine run of form for Juventus this campaign. It has been rumoured that his absence from the team is due to the fallout with Lionel Messi rather than the manager. Messi, though, has rejected to the speculation by saying that he has no say in the team selection whatsoever.
Tevez has struggled to reclaim the importance he once had when he moved to Manchester city. Since the fallout with Roberto Mancini, which resulted in a six-month exile from all forms of football, Tevez has been working to rediscover his touch. The striker is slowly getting back to his best after sealing a £ 10 million move to Juventus in the summer. He has not been selected for the recent international matches and this is causing him a lot of pain. He has revealed that he will not watch the team play at the 2014 World Cup if he is not selected.
Tevez and Messi did not enjoy a great partnership with each other, but the Barcelona ace favours playing with Sergio Aguero.
“If Sabella hasn’t called me up, I’m not going to phone him to find out why he doesn’t pick me. I don’t think I will watch it (World Cup 2014) because it hurts me to see the national team, it’s bad for me,” said Tevez in a recent interview. “We have a spectacular group and it’s certainly no problem if Tevez comes in. But at the same time that’s the coach’s decision and we players have nothing to do with that,” said Messi to the ESPN.
Carlos Tevez signed with Juventus some months ago but is confident that his team can not only aim and claim the Scudetto but also the Champions League as he spoke to the media in one of his latest interviews.
He told Globo Esporte: “Our biggest objective is the Scudetto. If we win the league for the third in a row, then we will make club history.
The Argentine later went on talking about what it feels like not only to play with Juventus but live in Italy.
“Juventus are a great club, as are Corinthians, Boca Juniors and the two Manchester clubs. I don’t see any difference. I am happy in Turin. It’s a beautiful city and the supporters have given me a lot of affection. Listening to songs in my name is always a pleasure.”
Juventus has won the Scudetto for 2 consecutive years and Teves is positive that they can secure the trophy another year in a row. They are at the top of Serie A with 34 points after As.Roma dropped 2 points during their 0-0 draw against Cagliari allowing Juventus to step it up and secure the top position of the Italian League.
Scoring 4 goals and creating 2 assists on the last 8 matches for Juventus, Carlos Tevez has quickly found his way into the Italian team by making an impact despite only being with the club for around 5 months.
He even recognition and praise from the former Juventus player Pavel Nedved.
“He’s a phenomenon,” the former Ballon d’Or winner told Tuttosport. “For what he puts on the field, he reminds myself and coach Antonio Conte of our times. When we got him [from City], we knew we could move forward with security’’.
“He is leader. Could he play with us in our great Juve team? Certainly: he’s a champion. He’s irresistible when he gets to chase the ball: he never gives up.”
