Juventus looking to sign Fredy Guarin during January transfer window

Even though Juventus has plenty of options to play in the centre of the pitch as the likes of Claudio Marchisio and Paul Pogba have been in very good form this season, The Old Lady constantly tries to improve their squad and according to several reports they've been looking to land Colombian international Fredy Guarin from rivals Inter Milan.

There's no question that things haven't gone according to plan for Juventus this season so they will be looking to add players on both sides of the ball during the upcoming January transfer window. Guarin is one of the team's top targets as he could be an asset on both sides of the ball thanks to his relentless display, his vision in midfield and his ability to find the back of the net, especially from long range.

Inter not looking to get rid

There are no signs of a probable deal happening any time soon though. Even though Guarin has less than two years left on his current deal at Giuseppe Meazza, Inter is not looking to part ways with the Colombian star so it would take a big offer to lure him away from Milano. This isn't the first time that Juventus tries to sign the coveted playmaker though as they already tried to sign him during January in 2014 but the deal fell through in the last stages.

Regardless of the previous experience, it is believed that Juventus is quite confident of a possible deal being made this time and the initial reports indicate that the Colombian star could be had for around €11m (£7.9m).

An asset to Inter

Guarin has featured quite often for Inter this side and his two-way ability has been quite an asset for Roberto Mancini since he has been the perfect complement for the likes of Gary Medel and Felipe Melo in midfield, although at the same time the plethora of options Mancini has for the CM role would make him allow the transfer. 

Guarin has made 12 Serie A appeareances and has only one goal so far.
