Juventus Target Palermo Defender Simon Kjaer

Palermo central defender Simon Kjaer seems to be edging closer to a move to Juventus. Turin-based daily Tuttosport claims that the Corso Galileo Ferraris directors are considering making a very tempting offer to sway the mad race in their favour.

Juventus are allegedly willing to pay a sizeable sum of money plus present Palermo with the services of striker Raffaele Palladino, who is currently on loan at Genoa, midfielder Albin Ekdal and defender Lorenzo Ariaudo.

Kjaer has caught the eye of several European clubs this term, however, Palermo have insisted he will be staying put over the summer.

Inter, Milan and Fiorentina are also said to be in the running, with the player’s agent, Claudio Pasqualin, claiming yesterday that the Gigliati are in the driving seat to land his client.

But Juve have an excellent rapport with Palermo and could repeat last summer’s coup, when they brought in Brazilian striker Amauri for a fee of €12.5 million plus the full services of Antonio Nocerino and the co-ownership of Davide Lanzafame.
