Juventus are being linked with a push for Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik.

After Juve GM Jean-Claude Blanc declared yesterday that they will sign "a champion" in the summer, Gazzetta dello Sport says Hamsik is the player he wants.

The Slovakia international has been likened to Pavel Nedved and his price has dropped after Chelsea failed with a £30 million offer last summer.

Juve are willing to offer players - including Rafaelle Palladino - in their bid for Hamsik, who feels he's now ready to play Champions League football.
