Toni, Floccari or Gilardino for Juve

Juventus plan to sign a striker in the January transfer and have Luca Toni, Sergio Floccari or Alberto Gilardino in their mind, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Gigi Del Neri would like a prolific goalscorer to lead his attack to take some of the burden off the rest of the team.

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta is known to be very keen on Gilardino who recently changed his agent, possibly to facilitate a move away from Fiorentina.

Fans of the Viola have already started to get on Gilardino's back, especially as speculation mounts that he will move to Turin in exchange for Amauri.

However, the likelihood of such a deal seems difficult, so Marotta has drawn up a couple of alternatives to satisfy the team's requirements.

La Gazzetta understands Amauri could also form part of a deal to sign Floccari, but even that would appear difficult considering his importance to Lazio.

The prospect of loaning Luca Toni has also been sounded out, while some reports suggest Juventus intend to swap to Davide Lanzafame for Brescia's Andrea Caracciolo.
