Birmingham City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed that Juventus midfielder Stephan Appiah is a summer transfer target. Appiah is likely to be one of the most in-demand players in Europe at the end of the season after struggling to secure regular football this term.
Middlesbrough have attempted to head off any move by Everton for Juventus midfielder Stephan Appiah by lodging an official approach to the Turin club for the African.
