Today Turin based newspaper Tuttosport reported that Juventus have started their attempts to sign Lazio right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner. It is understood that Lichtsteiner would be a replacement for Marco Motta.

The Swiss international has a buy-out clause of 12 million Euros in his contract and has admitted that he is keen to move onto a bigger team to win silverware. Juventus director Beppe Marotta has set a meeting with Stephan's agent and brother to test the water for a move.

It is believed that Juventus aren't so keen on paying the full amount and are looking at players to add to the deal. Storari and De Ceglie have been mentioned but Lotito wants the full amount in cash.

There is also Manchester City that are interested in the Swiss and the 12 million price tag would not be a problem.

Should Lichtsteiner leave, Lazio would like to replace him with Mattia Cassani of Palermo, although president Zamparini claims that no contact has yet been made.
