Juventus to sign Nicolas Anelka
Milan: Former French international Nicolas Anelka arrived in Torino to sign a five-month contract with Juventus, the Italian Serie A champions club general manager Beppe Marotta confirmed.
Marotta believes the 33-year-old striker will be useful in ending an "emergency" situation in attack.
"In July we made some targeted investments, but now we are in an emergency situation in attack, so we moved to fix those issues, even if it is not official yet," Marotta said.
"It can be a good move for the short-term, then at the end of the season we`ll evaluate what must be done. He is filling a hole. It is a five-month contract with an option for the second season, if things go well.”
"Anelka`s arrival rules out any other transfers, because in this stage of the transfer window there are no other opportunities.”
"He will put himself at the disposal of the squad and it`ll be up to Antonio Conte (Coach) to decide how to use him. After all, he is not in great physical condition considering he hasn`t played for a month," he said
