Juventus has joined the race to sign Palermo midfielder Robin Quaison.
Giuseppe Marotta, Juve’s sporting director established contact with Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini on Wednesday, according to Gianluca Di Marzio. Quaison’s contract expires at season’s end and therefore, the bianconeri want to take advantage.
Di Marzio reports that Sampdoria, Watford and Birmingham City are also after the Swedish talent. Sampdoria offered 400 thousand euros for an 18-month loan with a mandatory purchase at 2.4 million euros.
However, Juventus is offering Palermo 2.8 million euros for the midfielder. Not only that, but the club will also let Quaison stay at Palermo for the rest of the season. This is something that Zamparini prefers.
The 23-year-old player has scored four goals thus far for Palermo this season in 16 Serie A appearances.
Quaison’s contract will expire soon, but Juventus is in position to acquire the player’s services. Juve and Sampdoria await Zamparini’s response.
