Italian authorities are investigating alleged “irregularities” in Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez’s Italian citizenship test.

The Barcelona striker took the exam last week as part of a possible move to Italian club Juventus.

But the Perugia prosecutor’s office and the financial police say they are looking into how the test took place.

Judicial sources however have told Golden News Ng that Suarez himself is not under investigation.

The player allegedly knew about subjects given in the test before he took it at the University of Perugia and had his final score agreed beforehand, according to a statement issued by the prosecutor’s office in Perugia, central Italy, and the Guardia di Finanza.
