Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has admitted his admiration for Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet.

The 17 year-old has been likened to Juve icon Gigi Buffon.

Marotta enthused: "Scuffet? He has great promise. But must be confirmed.

"He has all the requirements to do something important in the history of football. He has the quality of being able to cover the entire goal."
