Giovinco’s deal runs out next summer and according toTuttosport, Juve will cash in now or extend his current contract. Liverpool have held a long-standing interest in the diminutive forward who hasn’t been given a great deal of first team opportunities this season, operating as a substitute for the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente. Giovinco is quick, skilful and possesses a clever eye for a pass; the perfect fit for Brendan Rodgers’ fast and intricate style of play. Juventus will be loath to see him go for free next summer so would want to recoup some money with a sale this summer.
