Juventus bid to sign Nigerian attacker David Okereke

Juventus bid to sign Nigerian attacker David Okereke

Crystal Palace will face surprise competition from Juventus in their bid to sign David Okereke from Spezia.

According to Italian outlet Il Secolo XIX,  as cited on the Inside Futbol, the Turin giants are keeping a close eye on his development.

The report claims a number of top-flight Italian teams have also registered an interest, with Okereke continuing to impress in the second tier.

Okereke was linked with a move  to Palace recently after impressing in Serie B for Spezia.

The Premier League side are said to have watched the player in action, while scouts from Juventus and Standard Liege have also been monitoring the player.

The Nigerian has scored six goals this season, making it easy to see why teams are looking at the player as a potential target.

Palace themselves have been looking to add goals to their squad, with Roy Hodgson’s men among the lowest scorers in the Premier League.
