Zapata and Ranocchia on Juve list

The Corriere dello Sport is suggesting that Italian champions Juventus are interested in Andrea Ranocchia and Cristian Zapata.

The Old Lady are expected to bring in a new stopper this summer and both players are on their shortlist.

Boss Antonio Conte worked with Ranocchia at Arezzo and Bari in the past, but tempting Inter to sell their centre-back to a direct rival would be problematic.

Colombian international Zapata would, in theory, be an easier objective given that he would be cheaper and available for transfer following Villarreal’s relegation.

The 25-year-old knows Serie A well as he spent six years with Udinese before his reported €9m move to Spain last summer.
