Raman eyes Juve breakthrough

Ghanaian youngster Yusif Chibsah Raman believes he can break into the Juventus first team set-up before the end of the new season.

The 18-year-old moved to the Juventus Stadium in August last year from Serie B side Sassuolo on full ownership basis.

Raman has been a key player for Juventus' Primavera squad since his move.

"We started the season well and we can do well. I hope to break into the first team in a couple of months to come," Raman said.

"I arrived in Italy in March 2009 with a talent scout who saw me at a tournament.

''For every young player, getting to play in a top flight team is always a dream.''

Raman was transferred from Bechem United three years ago after excelling in a youth tournament.

He has been selected as a member of Ghana's Under-20 team
