Bendtner, Matri to make way at Juve
Nov 22, 2012 3:14 PM GMT
Juventus are reportedly ready to part ways with either Nicklas Bendtner or Alessandro Matri if they manage to sign a striker.
The Serie A champions have been linked with players such as Fernando Llorente, Pablo Osvaldo and Didier Drogba in recent times, and the arrival of one of those could mean a transfer for Bendtner or Matri.
The Denmark international Bendtner joined Juve from Arsenal on a one-year loan deal at the start of the 2012-13 campaign, but has so far been unable to make an impact at the Turin giants.
Bendtner has made seven official appearances for Juventus without finding the net, and a return to England seems to be on the cards.
Matri has been with the Bianconeri since January last year, but has been struggling to secure regular first team action this season.
The 28-year-old has scored only once in 11 appearances this term, and Juventus are ready to sell him if a good offer comes in amid interest from AC Milan.
Juventus will further plan their winter transfer activity after the Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk in December, and it appears likely that a striker will be brought in if they qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.
