Juventus: Fact or Fiction on Juve's Hottest Transfer Rumours

We're one week removed from the start of the January transfer window, so it's time for another edition of Fact or Fiction, where we look at the hottest transfer rumours that surround the Bianconeri and determine whether these deals could happen.

Juventus enjoyed a fantastic year in 2012, winning the Serie A title and qualifying from a difficult UEFA Champions League group, and the team will go into 2013 with a comfortable lead in the Italian League and a good chance of making a deep run in the UCL.

As a result, there aren't many holes that need to be filled. The injury to Giorgio Chiellini has made the depth along the back line a little thin, so an extra centre-back would be a welcome addition. Adding young talent is always a good thing, and a prolific striker would really push the Bianconeri to the top.

January signings are always a bit tricky. New players have to adapt to foreign environments and new systems, and because signings are often made due to holes on a roster that desperately need to be plugged, teams will often have to overpay to get their guy.

Because of this, I don't believe that Juventus will be making a lot of signings in January. The past summer window was very fruitful for Antonio Conte and his team, and the team is looking too good to merit a big spending spree.

OK, let's review the rumours. Fact means a deal would be possible, not that a deal is a certainty.
