Former West Ham man nears Juventus switch
Former West Ham man Alessandro Diamanti is on the verge of signing for Juventus.
The forward spent just over a season at Upton Park and was a crowd favourite before he moved to Brescia in the summer of 2010.
He has since moved on to Bologna and is now close to moving again – this time to the Serie A champions.
With Emanuele Giaccherini departing for Sunderland there is a gap in the Juventus squad and Antonio Conte wants to bring in Diamanti for a fee of around £8m.
And numerous reports in Italy suggest the deal could be concluded by the end of the week.
