Simone Zaza stays, Kingsley Coman goes, says Juve`s Massimiliano​ Allegri

Simone Zaza is staying with Juventus but Kingsley Coman is on the verge of leaving the Turin giants, coach Massimiliano Allegri said Saturday.

Zaza has recently been linked with a move to Marseille but the departure of several front men recently means Juventus cannot afford to lose the lively Italy international.

"Zaza won`t be leaving the club," said Allegri. "He`s an important player, an international player, and needs to develop."

Zaza ended a successful loan spell at Sassuolo last season to return to the Italian champions although his future has been in the balance of late due to a surplus of strikers.

However, in midweek Juventus allowed Spain international striker Fernando Llorente to leave for Sevilla and on Saturday Allegri said Coman -- reportedly on the verge of signing for Bayern Munich -- would be leaving the club.

"Coman is leaving us," confirmed Allegri although he gave no further details.

Following the departure of Carlos Tevez to Boca Juniors, it leaves Juventus with only four strikers in Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala, Alvaro Morata and Zaza.

Juventus face scudetto rivals Roma in the Italian capital on Sunday.
