Juventus hero Alessio Tacchinardi has told his former club to sign Scotland midfielder Lewis Ferguson this summer. 

Ferguson, 24, has flourished since joining Bologna in a £3million move from Aberdeen almost two years ago and he was even made captain of the Serie A side last October. 

The former Hamilton Academical youth graduate is believed to have caught the eye of AC Milan, Napoli and Juventus after scoring six times and providing four assists from his 30 appearances this season - which have proved pivotal to Bologna's push to secure Champions League football.

Reports in Italy have also linked Juventus to Atalanta's playmaker Teun Koopmeiners, however Tacchinardi, who played almost 300 times for Juve between 1994 and 2007, believes the Turin-based outfit should try lure both players to the Allianz Stadium when the summer transfer window opens.

He told Tuttomercatoweb: “In my opinion, Juve should take them both. This team needs midfielders who know how to score goals, and they both are.

"It needs intense players, and they both are. Players who dribble and attack the goal, and they both are.

"They compliment each other very well and I would take them both. If I had to choose, it would also depend on the technical guide. 

"Koopmeiners seems to like to dribble a little more, Ferguson always goes inside. But then again, I would see them well together and in my opinion they are two Juventus players.”
