The search for a striker at Juventus has become more pressing
following confirmation that Luca Toni will be out for a month with
a knee injury.
Tests revealed the Italy international suffered a knee ligament
lesion during Thursday’s Coppa Italia triumph over Catania.
The veteran forward joined Juve last week from Genoa shortly
after the Turin giants had lost Fabio Quagliarella to a knee injury
for the rest of the campaign.
To complicate matters for Juve coach Luigi Del Neri ahead of
Sunday’s match against rock-bottom Bari, Italy striker Vincenzo
Iaquinta is also still sidelined by injury while captain Alessandro
Del Piero is doubtful with a knee problem.
