Juventus and Inter will reportedly battle it out for Fiorentina talent Federico Chiesa in the summer.
The forward has been impressing for the Viola over the past few seasons, and has also performed well for Italy in recent matches.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta had essentially agreed a deal to bring him to Turin in the summer of 2019.
However, the director will now be working for the Nerazzurri, and that could create a transfer war between the two.
Juve are still thought to be in pole position, but sporting director Fabio Paratici will have to move fast to stop his mentor from hijacking the deal.
The Bianconeri are ready to invest around €50m for Chiesa, part of which could be made up by sending a player in exchange.
Marko Pjaca, who is already on loan in Florence, would be a logical option, but Riccardo Orsolini is also being considered, the newspaper reports.
