Turin giants in process of “removing excess players”.
Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has revealed that the club are looking to sell two strikers this summer.
The Bianconeri are currently in the USA as part of their pre-season schedule, and suffered a disappointing 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday.
However, Marotta was asked about the club’s remaining transfer activity ahead of the new season, and he explained that the Bianconeri are looking to reduce the number of strikers at the club to four.
“I will not name names, but at this moment we have six strikers. We need to be left with four,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia as reported by Football Italia.
“We are in the phase of removing excess players from the squad.”
With the arrival of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente this summer, coach Antonio Conte has a whole host of options at his disposal this season.
The new signings are expected to feature heavily both in Serie A and in Europe, leaving Conte with more than enough cover as he looks to compete on all three fronts.
Sebastian Giovinco and Mirko Vucinic are expected to remain at the club, which means that Norwich target Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri are prime targets to leave Turin over the course of the next month.
Everton have been paired with a move for Matri, but it remains to be seen whether they will make a formal bid for the marksman.
Meanwhile, speculation had suggested that Norwich made a €10m bid for Quagliarella, although an agreement has not yet been reached over a transfer.
