A mainstay under Antonio Conte at Juventus, Kwadwo Asamoah has had rotten luck with injuries under Max Allegri, and with 18 league appearances in two seasons, talk of an exit had started to emerge.

Obviously, the easy link was to send the player over to Chelsea, where his former manager is about to take over once Italy get knocked out of (or win) the Euros in France.

Many reports have been published in the Italian press, but the player’s agent, Edoardo Crnjar, made it clear there were no such plans in the mind of the Ghanaian international.

Speaking to SportItalia, relayed by Calciomercato, he said: “In Asamoah’s future, there is no Premier League because he will be staying at Juventus next season”.

The 27-year-old was seen as the perfect man to bomb up and down that left-wing for Antonio Conte at Chelsea, as he did during the Italian’s time at Juventus.

Also capable of playing in the centre of midfield, Asamoah will seemingly now focus on ensuring his injury problems are behind him and make himself a versatile option for Allegri for the coming season.
