Juventus have a deal in place to sign Roma's David Pizarro but the transfer hinges on the outcome of the Bianconeri's pursuit of Cagliari's Radja Nainggolan, according to Tuttosport.

The Turin-based paper claims that the Bianconeri have reached an agreement with the capital club over the sale of their 32-year-old Chilean playmaker.

However, the paper claims that Juve are now willing to put the deal on hold until the end of January because they are keen to establish if Cagliari would be willing to sell versatile midfielder Nainggolan.

The Belgian represents the Sardinian side's most prized asset but Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta is apparently hopeful that he can persuade the Isolani to part company with Nainggolan for the right price, just as they did with Alessandro Matri 12 months ago.

Coincidentally, Juventus, who are joint-top of Serie A with AC Milan, host Cagliari in Turin on Sunday afternoon, possibly representing the ideal opportunity for Marotta to sound out Rossoblu chiefs about a possible deal for the 23-year-old.
