Juventus likely to sign Manuel Locatelli with an improved offer
Juventus have been locked in intense transfer talks with Sassuolo over the signing of highly-rated midfielder Manuel Locatelli, who is said to have snubbed interest from Arsenal in favour of joining the Old Lady.
Locatelli caught the eyes of Juve after back to back impressive seasons at Sassuolo, followed by an eye-catching Euro 2020 campaign.
According to a report, the Bianconeri are close to signing the 23-year-old after presenting an improved 30m euros offer to Sassuolo. It is also added that reserves star Marco Dragusin could be included in the deal.
Max Allegri wants a power-packed squad at his disposal ahead of next season and considers Locatelli a pivotal player to his project.
Juventus plotting a loan move to resign Miralem Pjanic
The Bosnian midfielder moved from Juventus to the Nou Camp in a straight swap deal involving Arthur last summer; however things didn’t go in the way, he would have expected.
The Catalans are now open to selling him after one season as they look to balance their books.
Juve are interested in resigning Pjanic as Max Allegri thinks he can add more value to the squad.
Pjanic flourished in the deep-lying playmaker role under Allegri, and he could reprise that role if he moves to Turin.
