TuttoMercatoWeb has spoken about many interesting deals that could happen this summer in Italy.
Juventus is starting to realize that they need to shift gears and shift players. Conte, who has won the scudetto twice and chasing his third, knows that he needs to sign new players, and inspire them even more in order to retain their crown and remain competitive. They need to avoid the advances that bigger teams are taking on players like Pogba and Vidal. The interest in these two players is increasing daily. Marotta has stated that Juve has always relied on purchasing players and making profit off of them. On the other hand, Juventus needs to purchase players who are hungry to win, while still having good technical skills.
One player who Juventus is after is Candreva, of Lazio. He has played for Juventus before, but he is being courted by Marotta again. Juve has begun speaking to Antonio Candreva’s agent, but not with Lazio. Juventus is also interested in another Lazio player, Senad Lulic. In this deal, Juventus has reportedly offered Quagliarella and Giovinco, who have both been demoted in their roles over this past season.
However, there is also interest in many other stars. Nani of United, Cuadrado of Fiorentina and even Pereyra of Udinese are on the radar of the Bianconeri. Lazio, who doesn’t know the future of German international Miroslav Klose, is enquiring about Luis Muriel, a young striker for Udinese. Lazio has spoken to the Zebrette already, but it seems like Udinese doesn’t want to sell their young superstar. However, the deal can be revived.
Fiorentina and Udinese have also spoken about the ownership of Cuadarado. It seems as if Udinese will sell their half to the Viola, but they are looking for a replacement. One possible alternative is Babacar Bernanrdeschi, of Crotone, who is succeeding this year.
Alessandro Florenzi of Roma, who played for the aforementioned Crotone, is now deemed unsellable. The Giallorossi are trying to renew the contract of their player. He might get a four year contract, with a substantial pay rise due to his fantastic play.
One player that isn’t untouchable in the Italian capital is Taddei, who is 34 years old. Roma might not renew his contract because of his age, but they will meet and discuss his future very soon.
Napoli, who is struggling as of late. They would like to finish third place, but De Laurentiis wants to improve the squad as a whole, and invest. They are looking to the future, starting with Duvan Zapata. The young forward has looked convincing, but he still needs experience.
Napoli is looking at Elkeson, who is a Brazillian striker, for Marcello Lippi’s Guanzghou Evergrande. However, there is only a slight interest in the forward at this time.
Inter Milan, who is looking for a forward to replace Diego Milito, is now also looking for a midfielder. Javi Garcia of Manchester City, Obi Mikel of Chelsea and Nilton of Cruzeiro are all targets for the Nerazzurri.
