Juventus To Use Sebastian Giovinco As Bait For Palermo's Simon Kjaer - Report

Juventus are set to hold a summer clear-out with a number of players leaving, and Sebastian Giovinco will be used as a bargaining tool for Palermo defender Simon Kjaer.

The young Italian has become an outcast at the club over the last year. The arrivals of Diego and Antonio Candreva have seen him frozen out of plans. Appearances on the bench or in the stands have been the story of much of Giovinco's season.

With the possibility of regular action looking less than likely next term, Juve will use him as a spanner to tighten up a move for Kjaer. The Palermo stopper is wanted in Turin, but the Rosanero want cash plus a player, and Giovinco may be the right kind of bait.

The 'Formica Atomica' has always resisted moves away in the past, but he is not prepared to stay on at Juve only to play second fiddle.
