James Troisi could soon be on his way to Italian giants Juventus according to his father.
The Australian midfielder recently departed Turkish club Kayserispor and could sign for Juve even though a mooted loan to Pescara appears to have fallen over.
Troisi was set to join Juventus and would then be sent on loan to Pescara with the Old Lady would signing Marco Verratti from the Delfini. However, Pescara are now keen to retain the young gun making that deal unlikely but Troisi's father Alby suggests a move to Turin may still be on the cards.
"I am aware that the Pescara side of the deal is now not going to happen but we have been in touch with Juve and negotiations are continuing and hopefully something will be resolved in the next few days," he said.
"I am optimistic he will still join Juve. James is very keen to play in Europe and he won't probably look elsewhere until those avenues are exhausted.
"It's my understanding that Juve are still keen and the deal, to my understanding, is still alive. He will not obviously be going to Pescara now but that doesn't mean he will not still be signed by Juve and placed on loan elsewhere."
