……after the Alvaro Morata injury.

The Bianconeri had an unlucky start to Morata’s spell in Turin, as in his first training session he sprained his knee with ligament damage, meaning six weeks on the sidelines.


According to Calcio News24, general manager Beppe Marotta is already looking for a short-term replacement who can arrive on loan.

The primary target is Borini, who seems not to have much room at Liverpool and is due to snub a permanent transfer to Sunderland worth £14m.

However, it would be tricky considering Liverpool are tired of loaning the ex-Roma striker out and wanted to cash in.

Another alternative for Juventus is 21-year-old Belgium international Lukaku, whose rapport with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea is problematic.

He too seemed to be on the verge of joining Everton, but the promise of Champions League football could change Lukaku’s mind.

A far easier task would be to bring back Daniel Osvaldo, who spent the last six months on loan with the Bianconeri.

Today Southampton confirmed they do not want him back this season, so another loan or a sale would be easy to arrange.

He scored only one Serie A goal during the loan period in Turin.



Patience as an athlete is crucial.  Looking from the outside in, Fabio Borini has had a tough ride, but one that has made him a valuable athlete. Loaned out by Liverpool, he has obtained valuable game play.  Looks like its going to pay off!

Imagine how he must be feeling,..on the brink of being able to play at home again?!?  Fingers crossed for you Fabio!

Thanks Football Italia.
