Juventus are interested in signing Leandro Paredes to boost their midfield for next season.
According to Calciomercato.com, Juventus have been interested in the former Roma midfielder since he joined the Giallorossi in 2014 and the Bianconeri would like to sign the Argentinian international to help increase the strength of their midfield for next season.
Calciomercato.com reported that Paredes hasn’t adjusted to life in Russia and that he wants a harder challenge than his current side Zenit, who are managed by Roberto Mancini. Paredes and his agent have apparently agreed moving abroad would be the best route forward for the 23 year old.
A deal for Juventus would be difficult though as Zenit are unlikely to sell Paredes for anything less than €45 Million. The Russian outfit only purchased the former Roma midfielder from the Capital club last summer and Calciomercato.com also mentioned that Real Madrid are interested as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos.
