Juve look to ship strikers
Juventus look set to offload a number of out-of-favour front-men as head coach Antonio Conte looks to build his own squad. The Serie A league leaders are overloaded with strikers – especially ones who are the wrong side of 30; the likes of Carvalho Amauri, Luca Toni and Vicenzo Iaquinta.
It looks as though Amauri will be the first of those experienced attackers to be heading out of Turin. The 31-year old spent the back-end of last season on loan at Parma and hasn't made an appearance since his return to La Vecchia Signora. His seven goals in 11 appearances for Parma proved he is still a valuable asset to have in Serie A. Goal-shy Fiorentina have moved to add the former Palermo forward to their ranks. Those looking at the Serie A betting will be keeping a close eye on the moves.
The Florence club have struggled to find the back of the net on a regular basis this season, currently the sixth lowest scorers in Serie A, and had been chasing the Brazilian-born striker for a while before finally securing his signature.
Veteran forward Toni is another that the club are actively trying to offload, with the 47-cap Italian international believed to have a number of options both in Italy and abroad. The former Bayern Munich man could be on his way to the MLS, however, there has been reported interest in the striker from Germany. Fans of online sports betting sites should remember this.
The final one heading for the door is Vincenzo Iaquinta – although, it remains to be seen whether or not the 32-year old will leave now or at the end of the season. The versatile forward is another who hasn't made an appearance this season, however, the former Udinese star is reportedly in no rush to leave Turin and could hang around until the end of the current campaign.
Should the three strikers leave the club, Juventus would still have a host of high-quality forwards available to them in their bid to maintain their current form and go on to win their first Serie A title in nine years.
