  10/01/2012: Juventus considering Matuzalem bid
email print  
Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that Juventus are weighing up a move for Lazio's defensive midfielder Francelino Matuzalem.

The Scudetto candidates are on the market for a defensive-minded player who also possesses some creativity. A deal for AS Roma's David Pizarro is believed to be on the cards but Gazzetta dello Sport now claim that any breakdown in talks there will see Juventus make a move for Matuzalem.

Lazio currently have an abundance of midfielders and as reported yesterday, Corinthians look set to sell yet another midfielder, Ralf, to the Roman outfit.

Considering Lazio's numerous options and Matuzalem's poor fitness record, Juventus believe they can snatch him for a lowly sum of one million euros; one eighth of what Claudio Lotito paid to permanently transfer the ex-Real Zaragoza man to Lazio.
