A Little Wheeling And Dealing In January?

Word from the Italian daily La Stampa is that Javier Mascherano is the key target for Juventus coach Didier Deschamps in January. Aware of the Argentine's problems in adapting to the style of play in the EPL, Didi will push his board to make West Ham an offer they can't refuse during the midseason transfer window. Juve tried for Mascherano over the summer before his move to West Ham and the Frenchman is desperate to bring him to Turin, where his only true holding midfielder is youngster Matteo Paro.

At this point, I'd like Mascherano to go to even Serie B as long as he can regain the form he's lost playing in the EPL. Argentina can't afford to have its first choice holding midfielder in that kind of condition.
