Premier League duo still interested in Juventus misfit

With the player spending a surprising amount of time on the sidelines, it appears Milos Krasic no longer figures into the long-term plans of Juventus manager Antonio Conte.

It’s understood that the Serie A side have offered Liverpool and Chelsea the chance to sign the winger for £7m; a cut-price fee which could tempt either side.

The Serbian international was being linked with a move to Manchester United back in 2010 but the then-CSKA Moscow attacker instead opted for the sunnier climates of Turin.

The deal that took place 18 months ago ended up costing around £15m, however the Italian giants are looking to regain some of their investment this month as it appears the 27 year-old has fallen out of favour at Juventus Stadium.

One can see why both Liverpool and Chelsea could be interested in signing Krasic for the fee given the below-par seasons each side is currently experiencing.

It’s thought that the Blues are soon to let go of Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda who both have contracts that run out in the summer and rather than lose the pair on a free, the Blues may cash in on the wingers now.

If the duo were to head for the Stamford Bridge exit, their transfer values alone could fund the move for Krasic, but whether or not those will be met is another matter.

Liverpool are also in the market for a winger and have been strongly linked with Adam Johnson, Eden Hazard and Aaron Lennon.

Despite signing Stewart Downing over the summer, the Reds are still lacking an attacking cut, and with Luis Suarez currently serving an eight-match ban, better supply to Andy Carroll and Craig Bellamy may be the only solution.

Turkish side Fenerbahce are rumoured to have already staged a bid for Krasic and Liverpool and Chelsea will need to act fast if they are to secure his signing.

Milos Krasic has made only eight appearances for Juventus this season and it looks certain that the 2011-12 campaign will be his last with the side, but where he might end up this February depends solely on which English giant wants him more.
