thumbnail Hello,

Juve are looking to snare the Bosnian ace...

Juventus are believed to have stepped up their interest in Wolfsburg frontman Edin Dzeko.

The Old Lady are understood to be in the market for a new striker as they hope to improve on a frustrating seventh-placed Serie A finish.

With David Trezeguet's time at Stadio Olimpico reportedly coming to an end, Juventus' quest for a goal-scorer has picked up pace, and the Turin-based side seem ready to make a move.

Calciomercato reports that Wolfsburg managing director Dieter Hoeness yesterday flew to Milan together with FIFA agent Giacomo Petralito, who played a leading role in Diego's transfer to Juventus last summer.

Although it is believed Hoeness has flown to Italy in search for players for his own club, he could still holds talks with Juve over the Bosnia international before returning to the Volkswagen Arena.

Dzeko, who grabbed 22 goals in the Bundesliga this season, is valued at around the €35m mark. Juventus are hopeful that they will not need to spend that much, however, and are therefore willing to include at least one of their players in the deal, with Zdeněk Grygera, Hasan Salihamidzic, Christian Poulsen and Diego mooted as possibilities.
