Juventus moved today to strengthen their depleted resources up front by signing Alessandro Matri on loan from Serie A rivals Cagliari while they sent Amauri on loan to Parma.

Matri, 26 and scorer of 11 goals this season, will cost Juventus €2.5m in the loan deal.

Juventus have fallen to seventh in the championship this season, following a home defeat to Udinese on yesterday, and are presently missing injured Italian international trio Fabio Quagliarella, who is out for the remainder of the campaign, Luca Toni and Vincenzo Iaquinta.
