Juventus give Giaccherini green light for Sunderland move

Juventus have given the green light for Emanuele Giaccherini to open talks with Sunderland.

The Daily Mail says Paolo Di Canio is on the brink of landing top transfer target Giaccherini after Juventus' recent spending spree forced them to accept a Sunderland bid of just under £7million.

Recent reports suggested Sunderland may have to bid around £8.5million for a versatile winger who struggles for a place at Juventus but was in Italy's starting X1 on the right flank at the Confederations Cup.

But Juve sporting director Beppe Marotta has sanctioned a £6.8million deal after taking stock of a summer of investment aimed at equipping the Serie A title-winners for a tilt at the Champions League next summer.
