Juventus reportedly ponder move for Maxi Lopez

The Bianconeri are in the market for a new quality striker and have identified the Argentine as a viable choice in case they fail to sign Italy international Mattia Destro
Juventus are weighing up a summer move for Catania striker Maxi Lopez, Tuttosport claims.

The Serie A champions are understood to be scouring the market for a new striker as they prepare to enter the Champions League after a two-year absence.

Genoa's Mattia Destro has been suggested as a strong possibility, but with Inter having first option on the player, the Bianconeri are reportedly looking at alternatives in case they fail to land the 21-year-old.

Maxi Lopez joined AC Milan on loan in January with a view to a permanent deal, but the Rossoneri decided against taking up their buying option at the end of the season.

The Argentine striker looks set to return to Catania, but according to his agent, he is already looking for a new club ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.
