Fiorentina’s Valon Behrami is Juventus’ new top transfer target for this month, claims the Turin-based Tuttosport.
According to the newspaper, the Swiss international was identified as their primary objective following a meeting on Sunday.
President Andrea Agnelli, boss Antonio Conte, as well as officials Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici met for market talks after yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Cagliari.
It’s understood that Conte is looking for a new dynamic midfielder who could step in for either Arturo Vidal or Claudio Marchisio.
Fiorentina are in the midst of a crisis and fans are furious after yesterday’s shock 1-0 home defeat to relegation-threatened Lecce.
It’s unclear whether the Tuscan giants would want to further complicate matters by selling the midfielder to arch-rivals Juve.
