Juventus have met with the agents of Sampdoria’s Roberto Soriano and Empoli’s Ricarco Saponara.

The Bianconeri have been linked with both the Italian talents in recent months and Sky Italia report that the club met with the players agents yesterday.

Sky report that there is strong interest in Saponara in particular, although a move in January would be tricky.

According to Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio Juve will continue their talks with Empoli over the coming days with a view to completing a deal in June.

Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi responded to the transfer rumours just last week, confirming Juve’s interest in the player.

“Juve? We say that Juve had words of appreciation for him and for us: we have been complimented when we brought him back from Milan, certainly they like him very much.

“Let’s see if in June this will turn into something concrete. Sure, Juve consider him and we enjoy him,” Corsi told Calciomercato.com.
