Juve press for Savic-Isla swap

Juventus are reportedly meeting with Fiorentina this week to continue early talks over a swap involving Stefan Savic and Mauricio Isla.

The Bianconeri are seen as interested in La Viola’s centre-back for his experience in playing in both a back-three and a back-four, which under Max Allegri the side are expected to transition between in 2014-15.

Tuttosport believe that a meeting to discuss a possible move for the 23-year-old is set with Fiorentina this week and that discussions will centre on an exchange deal with Isla.

Whilst the Chile international was previously seen as on the verge of a move to the Premier League, it is now understood that Juve are looking to involve him in this move and in a straight swap.

However, Fiorentina are understood to hold a higher valuation of Savic and apparently hope to have a cash payment included in the deal to balance out the difference.

Should talks with La Viola break down, one alternative Juventus reportedly have in mind is Manchester City’s Matija Nastasic.
