Almiron the key to Silvestre capture

Juventus will add Sergio Almiron as part of the deal to capture Catania central defender Matias Silvestre, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Bianconeri are on the hunt for a fourth central defender and look to be favourites ahead of Roma to sign the Argentine.

Rossoblu director Pietro Lo Monaco has requested €9 million for the former Boca Juniors man. However, the Giallorossi appear unwilling to meet that amount or add a player into the deal.

Though Juventus wish to insert their unwanted central midfielder Almiron, who returned to Turin after a spell at Bari, into their offer.

Silvestre was also on the radar of Milan via Genoa, akin to the deal which saw Kevin-Prince Boateng end up at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza last season.

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta is also keeping his eye on Nacional Montevideo defender Sebastian Coates, the young Uruguayan currently representing his country at the Copa America.
