New Juventus coach Max Allegri has hinted a move for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic is close to completion.

Barcelona are looking to offload Pjanic this summer, after a difficult first season at the Camp Nou, and his former coach indicated that Juventus are be ready to bring him back this summer.

As he discussed possible freekick takers for the upcoming season, he revealed that the club are working to bring in a right-footed freekick taker.

"We have Cristiano [Ronaldo], who is good at shooting from distance, as well as [Paulo] Dybala, who is good from a closer range," Allegri said.

"And soon a good right-footed player who can take freekicks could be arriving."
