Martinez eyes Serie A swoop

Reports in Italy claim Everton have approached Juventus about the prospect of signing their striker Alessandro Matri.

Having spent over £20million on the high-profile captures of Carlos Tevez and Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna, the Serie A champions need to recoup some money this summer.

They have already accepted a £8.5million bid, believed to be from Sunderland, for midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini and Matri is another player being tipped to leave Turin.

The latest reports claim the asking price is a stumbling block but that Everton are willing to offer the Italian international 20% more in wages than he currently earns with Juve.

Matri joined Juventus from Cagliari in 2011, costing €15.5million but a that was a deal due to be paid in three installments. Although he signed a contract extension last year, Juve appear willing to consider a summer departure.
