Juventus are pushing the Ghana FA to release Kwadwo Asamoah from their African Cup of Nations third-place playoff.

Juve want the midfielder available for next week's Champions League clash with Celtic.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Juve are urging Ghana not to play the midfielder as they want him back for the trip to Glasgow.

Juve travel to Celtic Park to play Neil Lennon's men on Tuesday February 12.
