Italian champions Juventus are considering making a move for Lyon forward Lisandro Lopez, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Bianconeri are looking to increase their attacking firepower during the current window, especially with on loan striker Nicklas Bendtner having picked up an injury which sees him sidelined at present.

Juventus have been keen on Shanghai Shenhua striker Didier Drogba, but it appears the Ivorian’s wage demands make a switch to Turin an unlikely one.

And so Lopez is being considered by Antonio Conte’s men.


The 29-year-old join Lyon in 2009, with the French side splashing an astonishing €24M fee to buy him from FC Porto.

However, with money now tight at the Stade Gerland, in part due to a new stadium being built, Lyon may consider allowing Lopez to join the Bianconeri.

Juventus are looking for an initial loan for the striker.
