Giovinco West Ham transfer played down
Friday 23 October 2009
Sebastian Giovinco has no intention of leaving Juventus in January, according to his agent.
West Ham are reportedly offering Swiss midfielder Valon Behrami to Juventus in a swap deal which would see the Italian playmaker move in the other direction.
However, the player's agent Andrea D'Amico told tuttomercatoweb.it: "He is not interested in any other option than to remain at Juventus.
"Giovinco is doing well and his only focus is with the Bianconeri project and nothing else."
Hammers coach Gianfranco Zola is a big admirer of the 22-year-old, having coached him in the Italy Under-21 team.
Giovinco, who has made just five appearances for Juve this season, is under contract with the Turin giants until June 2013.
