Two top Italian clubs have started the chase to sign Ghana international midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu at the end of the season.
Juventus and AS Roma are reported to be interested in signing the powerhouse midfielder from rivals Udinese for their campaigns next season.
According to reports in the Italian media, the two clubs must fork out $5m to be able to sign the hardworking player from his Fruili-based club.
The 22-year-old has been impressive for Udinese since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations which has sparked the interest from the two clubs.
Badu joined Udinese from Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko in the 2010/11 league season after excelling at the U20 World Cup in Egypt where he helped the Black Satellites to win the title.
