thumbnail Hello,

A former great has admitted that he would love to see Juve signing 'Il Talentino' in the summer as Pavel Nedved's replacement...

Former Juventus midfielder Franco Causio is urging the club to invest in Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

The Bianconeri are looking to strengthen for next season and a replacement for Pavel Nedved is needed. Cassano, Werder Bremen's Diego and Valencia's David Silva have all been linked with the role. Juve are staying quiet over who will come in but they have made it clear that they have the resources for a great player.

Causio, who played for Juventus during the 1970s and early 80s, has underlined Cassano's qualities and he has told his old team not to let the chance slip through their fingers.

"I don't know if Juve are bidding for Cassano but he is one of the best talents in football," Causio told Tuttosport.

"I don't think there is anything to discuss about Cassano. Everyone has made mistakes in the past, but he has improved a great deal in terms of his behaviour."

The Old Lady are ready to pump in millions to add reinforcements and create a far more competitive squad for next term. Reports from Turin suggest Diego is top of the hit-list, but Cassano's name is unlikely to be snubbed.
