Still looking for reinforcements in this final stretch of the summer window, Juventus signals that it will increase its efforts to count on a young talent that it has been monitoring for a long time: Federico Chiesa, attacking midfielder who belongs to Fiorentina. Well rated in Turin since his first seasons as a professional, the 22-year-old is the main target of the youth team.
According to the findings of journalist Gianluca Di Marzio – one of the most reliable sources in the coverage of Italian football -, Juventus put two players from its squad in the ‘package’ to enable the arrival of Viola’s young talent: full-back Mattia De Sciglio and defender Daniele Rugani, athletes who do not appear as protagonists in Andrea Pirlo’s plans for the season.
Still, according to the source quoted, Fiorentina was not delighted with the youthful offer, asking defender Merih Demiral as mandatory compensation in a hypothetical exchange of players. The Turkish defender, however, is seen as non-negotiable behind the scenes of the Old Lady and has been working to take over the sector with De Ligt after the retirements of Bonucci and Chiellini.
