Juventus are seeking to trim their jam-packed squad with the club’s general manager Beppe Marotta citing that they have too many forwards, according to ESPN.
The Serie A giants, who have already snapped up Manchester City castaway Carlos Tevez and Spanish international Fernando Llorente for the upcoming season, already had four regular forwards in the squad.
With Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella, Mirko Vucinic and Sebastiano Giovinco all still in the clubs’ ranks, Marotta has indicated that at least one will be surplus to requirements and will be released by the Turin club.
“Our attack is overflowing because it’s too much to have six strikers of such quality,” admitted Marotta. “We want to reduce it to five, maybe including one youngster, and we hope to find a positive solution for us.”
Norwich are believed to be interested in Quagliarella, whilst Matri is thought to have attracted attention from both the red and blue halves of Liverpool.
“We’re analysing offers but what the players want is far more important than what we want as a club,” added Marotta.
