Juventus chief Secco: We need a new Vieira

Juventus has been chasing Bordeaux’s Rio Mavuba and Liverpool’s Momo Sissoko in recent weeks.

Secco said: “We’re burning the midnight oil to find a new midfielder. Someone like Emerson, in fact more like a Vieira clone, we really need to make this happen.

“We are sifting through Italy and Europe. We’re ready to invest big in this.”
