Radja Nainggolan’s move to Juventus is part of a transfer merry-go-round involving Marco Parolo and Fulham’s Patjim Kasami.
The Bianconeri have a ‘moral agreement’ with Cagliari to sign the €15m-rated midfielder, but it remains to be seen whether the switch will take place this month or in June.
According to today’s Corriere dello Sport, the Sardinians won’t release Nainggolan without first having a suitable replacement.
The main target is Parolo, but again Cesena are not prepared to let him go unless they have a ready-made substitute.
Therefore, it’s reported Juventus will sign 19-year-old Kasami from Fulham and loan him out to Cesena.
In turn, the domino effect would prompt Cesena to hand Parolo to Cagliari, so Nainggolan would be free to join Juventus straight away.
Kasami is not new to Serie A, as the Swiss midfielder played for Palermo in 2010-11.
