Eto'o decision on Juventus imminent

Former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o is set to decide on whether he would be open to signing a contract with Juventus.

Since leaving Chelsea this summer, Samuel Eto'o has been looking for a European club where he can continue his career.

A number of sides have been linked with the experienced marksman, including Roma, Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham, but Juventus also seem to be interested in signing him.

Juventus were handed an unexpected blow when new £15.8 million signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid injured his knee in his first training session with the Italian club.

The Old Lady now appear to be looking for another striking addition to fill the void and are reportedly eyeing Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, who is also wanted by Everton and Atletico Madrid.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus sporting director Beppe Marotta hasn't given up on Lukaku, but he is also pressing Eto'o for a decision on whether he would consider joining the Italian champions.

Eto'o has been in action in Portugal in a testimonial for Deco, but he is expected to review his future very shortly and could give an answer within days.

Juventus have the advantage of offering Champions League football and see Eto'o as a man with the experience needed at the highest level.

However, the Turin outfit will probably need to convince Eto'o to agree to a reduction in his expected salary because they don't have the same resources as Chelsea.

Reports suggested that Roma were interested in Eto'o but the salary demands proved an insurmountable obstacle.
