Juventus signing Fabio Cannavaro is delighted to hear the club is chasing former Real Madrid teammate Mahamadou Diarra.

Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi is also wanted by Juve and Cannavaro said: "If they arrive then we'll cut the gap between ourselves and Inter.

"It will also help us get over the depression of Serie A losing Kaka.

"Mahamadou is a great, a kind of midfield Cannavaro, and Rossi is the kind of player who will bring with him plenty of quality. If we sign them then they will be two super buys."
