Kilmarnock are set to sign their second Juventus player of the summer, with Dario Del Fabro set to sign on loan (Daily Record).

It’ll be their second loan signing of the summer from the Italian giants after securing Laurentiu Branescu’s services. It shows that Angelo Alessio is using his impressive contact book to great effect.

The report claims that the centre-back will sign imminently as a move has been all but agreed.

Juventus talent Del Fabro could make his Kilmarnock debut this weekend perhaps

If they can get this over the line in time, Del Fabro could be in line for a Kilmarnock debut this weekend. Both Kirk Broadfoot and Stuart Findlay are struggling with injury ahead of their trip to St Johnstone.

It leaves just Alex Bruce as the club’s fit centre-half. Gary Dicker can do a job there but Alessio will be can to have a natural in the position. Del Fabro could be that man.

The Italian centre-back made his debut for Cagliari in 2012 against Juventus when Alessio was at the club. He has since moved to Juve and had various loan spells across Italy.

Contracted with Juventus until 2022 (Transfermarkt), Del Fabro still has time to prove he can be a Juve defender one day.

This isn’t his first taste of football in the UK. He had a brief spell at Leeds United, where he made just one appearance.

This deal seems like it’s only a matter of time before it is formally completed. Del Fabro might not have to wait long for his Kilmarnock debut.
