Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Juventus and Italy striker Fabrizio Miccoli.

Juventus claim the 26-year-old will go to either Villa or Benfica in the next two days.

“We need to sell a striker, and that would be Miccoli,” said Juventus general director Luciano Moggi.

“In a couple of days time, we will know whether he will go to Benfica or Aston Villa.”

Miccoli spent last season at Fiorentina in a deal which ended up with his rights being co-owned by both clubs.
