Juventus remain hopeful they can keep Italy international Sebastian Giovinco out of the clutches of Chelsea.

The 24-year-old has scored seven goals in 12 Serie A appearances for Parma this season and has impressed all and sundry with a number of cultured displays.

Chelsea have been frequently linked with Giovinco in recent months, and the player's agent has claimed Andre Villas-Boas is an admirer of his client.

However, the Chelsea boss may struggle in any attempt to bring Giovinco to Stamford Bridge, with Juventus and Parma co-owning the player.

And, says Juve general manager Beppe Marotta, the club would like to see him back in Turin at some stage, rather than move to London.

"We hope that Giovinco would return to Juve," Marotta explained.

"Parma is a friendly club. There is a real possibility: it will be good for Juventus and, therefore, also good for the national team. We have half, so we can bring him back."
