Juventus set to see off competition for Adama Diakite

Juventus are in advanced talks for Padova sensation Adama Diakite. Just 16, Diakite has Italy's biggest clubs chasing his signature and has been likened to Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli and dubbed the 'new Didier Drogba'.

Tuttosport says Juve are already well down the road in negotiations with Padova and Diakite said: "This is a dream come true. Alessandro del Piero is my idol."
