Shakhtar Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu declares interest in Fabio Quagliarella

Claudio Villa

Add Shakhtar Donetsk and manager Mircea Lucescu as the latest team to show interest in Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella. And, to be completely honest, if Lucescu had it his way, Quagliarella would probably be on the first flight to Donetsk in the morning.

Via Football Italia:

"Quagliarella? He's a great player, I'd take him straight away. I don't think it will be easy to convince him to accept Ukraine. I always wanted him two months ago, but at the time it was not possible to start real negotiations. We'll see what happens in this last week before the transfer deadline. Time is tight, but it's possible a door will open with the Bianconeri."

We've known about the interest from a couple different teams in England for quite a few weeks now. We've heard rumors that Juve tried to include him in a deal to Fiorentina for Stevan Jovetic. We've seen reports of some kind of interest of sending Quagliarella to Russia. Now, we've got Ukrainian interest in the 30-year-old Italian striker.

At this rate, we could add a few other teams from different countries before the summer transfer closes. It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world anyways. It'd certainly means Juventus would have options — even more than they seem to have right now. Yet with all of this supposed interest, obviously there hasn't been an offer that suits both the club financially and the player.

But as of right now, as time ticks down for Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici to make a move and offload at least one of Juve's strikers, Shakhtar are just another team to add to the list that is interested in Quagliarella's services.
