Juventus News Today ! 5/9/13

Giuseppe Marotta has reportedly been busy trying to sort deals out for the January transfer window just 5 days after the summer window closed. Its been reported that Marotta is working on deals for Nainggolan and Zuniga who had been targets this summer but were not able to complete their moves to Turin.

Xabi Alonso's contract ends with Real Madrid next summer and it is no surprise that Juventus are trying to sign the 31 year old. Many doubt this Juve tactic of signing old players but obviously it can work with a great example being Andrea Pirlo.

Marc Oliver Kempf had been tracked by a lot of top name clubs this summer and when he began talks with Juve it looked like Juve had won the battle but it was not to be and Kempf's agent has recently told the media that he did not a agree a deal because he didn't think that Kempf would get a lot of game time in Turin.

It was a surprise this summer to see Emanuele Giaccherini leave Juve this summer for Sunderland and yesterday at the Italian Training Base he said that it was hard for him to leave Turin but he ultimately decided to leave to get more regular football.

Juventus and Napoli have been said to have done the best business during the transfer window in Italy. Juventus added much needed quality up top with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente meanwhile Napoli replaced Edinson Cavani with many new signings and none other than Gonzalo Higuain.
