Juventus launching cash bid for Barcelona striker Krkic

Juventus are ready to splash out in January on Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic.

Juve chiefs see Krkic has an ideal foil to work off the likes of target men Vincenzo Iaquinta and Amauri.

There's been talk of an initial loan bid, however, it's emerged Juve are willing to offer €22 million to land Krkic permanently.

The striker has never enjoyed regular football under coach Pep Guardiola and his chances further receded this season with the arrival of David Villa from Valencia.
