Dossena's Juve link grows

16 June 2009 12:03
Andrea Dossena's future is still unclear according to the Liverpool player's agent, despite reports in Italy suggesting the 27-year-old is on the verge of signing for Juventus. Dossena struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League last season following his transfer from Udinese and seems set for a return to Serie A. Rumours suggesting the left-back will leave Anfield this summer intensified when the Reds emerged as favourites to land Portsmouth's Glen Johnson. However, Dossena's agent, Roberto La Florio, told Tuttomercatoweb: "To date, Liverpool have yet to put him on the market. The situation has not changed. Should he come back to Italy, he would be flattered. "Besides, (Italy coach Marcello) Lippi has told the players who are currently abroad to return to Italy with the World Cup around the corner." Last week La Florio had also tried to dampen down speculation about Dossena's future by saying: "We have spoken with Liverpool and with Rafa Benitez and we received confirmation that the club are keen on holding on to Dossena. "However, we all know what the market is like and when a certain offer comes along then negotiations open up. "So far neither us nor Liverpool have been presented with an offer, but we did have contact with Juve last year. "Dossena is fine in England. He would be happy to return, but under certain conditions. Juve are making their own evaluations and they will contact us if they are interested. We will wait."
