Armero claims Juventus & Napoli interest

The Udinese left-back impressed in the side's third-placed Serie A finish last season, and as such has been heavily linked with a move to another Italian club
Udinese defender Pablo Armero has revealed that Juventus and Napoli are interested in signing him.

The Colombia international played a part in Francesco Guidolin’s men's third-placed Serie A finish in 2011-12, and has since been linked with a move elsewhere in Italy.

Despite Tuttosport claiming that Antonio Conte’s men are on the verge of completing a deal for the 25-year-old, the player has insisted that he is in no hurry to leave the Stadio Friuli.

“Udinese are a club that aim to educate young players and help them grow," the former Palmeiras man told Futbolred.

"So, no, I am not desperate to move. I am fine at the Friuli, I have four years of my contract left and the chance to play in the Champions League.

“I am calm, but I know clubs like Juventus and Napoli are interested in me."

The Bianconeri have already signed Kwadwo Asamoah and Mauricio Isla from Udinese this summer, with Armero being touted as the third player to make the move to Turin.
