The Rumour

Juventus are considering a bid for Liverpool fullback Andrea Dossena.

The left-sided defender was included in Marcello Lippi’s Italy squad yesterday and Sportsmediaset says Juve are now weighing up making an offer to bring him back home.

The Analysis

I think its fair to say that Andrea Dossena’s career at Anfield started very poorly indeed as the Italian who had been lauded as one of the best full backs in Serie A turned in a series of woeful performances jam packed with poor passing and bouts of positional craziness but then the former Udinese man seemed to realise his failings and began to become a half decent player.

He even managed to add goalscoring to his list of valuable attributes as he netted twice in that very special week for Liverpool Sports News - February 09, 2009fans as Rafa’s men beat Man United and Real Madrid in the same space of four days. However the 27 year old is having to share the left back slot with Fabio Aurelio and the hugely improved Emiliano Insua so he may well welcome a return to Italy and a move to Juventus could work well for all parties as Benitez looks to raise transfer funds from player sales.

The Likelihood

Dossena to Juventus: Seems very possible.
