Serie A champions Juventus are set to open talks with Udinese over Kwadwo Asamoah in the next couple of days, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The newspaper reports on Sunday that the Coppa Italia finalists have scheduled two days of meetings with the Friulani in which they are likely to offer co-ownership rights to Michele Pazienza and Luca Marrone as part of a deal to bring the highly-rated midfielder to Turin.

The 23-year-old, who has 39 caps for Ghana, has become one of the most sought-after players in Italy with a consistent stream of eye-catching performances since his €1 million (£800,000) move from Bellinzona in 2008. The Bianconeri are thought to be eager to add him to their ranks ahead of the added workload next season.

Pazienza has already spent four months with Francesco Guidolin's side, having been loaned out by the Old Lady in January, while Marrone scored his first Serie A goal in the season-ending 3-1 victory over Atalanta last week.

However, it is expected that Juve would insist on a clause allowing them the right to buy back Marrone's full ownership at a later stage.

Juventus take on Napoli on Sunday evening in the Coppa Italia final looking to complete a domestic double last achieved by Inter in 2010. The match kicks-off at 20:00 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with full coverage on Goal.com.
