Cigarini could be a Juve target

Luca Cigarini's agent expects his client to be targeted by Juventus should the Bianconeri sell Momo Sissoko in January.

The Sevilla midfielder has been linked with the Old Lady in recent times and Giovanni Bia has done little to cool the rumours of a possible switch.

"Although no negotiations have taken place yet, Cigarini is certainly a name that Juventus would like – especially if Sissoko leaves," the representative told Sky Sport Italia.

"Sevilla want to keep him for the time being, but let us just wait and see whether there is a chance of a January return to Italy."

The 24-year-old would need permission from Napoli to move on though seeing as he is currently only on loan to his Spanish club from the Azzurri.

Sissoko has been linked with an exit given that he has lost his place in the first team plans of boss Gigi Del Neri.

Juve are apparently ready to sell should any club offer at least €8m for the former Liverpool man. A number of German clubs are keen.
