Juve scout Zaniolo & De Ligt?

Fabio Paratici reportedly used Juventus’ Champions League break to scout Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo and Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.

Sky Sport Italia is among several sources that claim Paratici was at both the Olimpico and Johan Cruyff Arena to watch Zaniolo and De Ligt.

The Italy starlet would have impressed with his two goals, which fired Roma to a 2-1 victory over Porto, while the Dutchman’s Ajax were considered unlucky to have lost 2-1 to Real Madrid.

The pair are thought to be among Juve’s prime targets for the summer as the sporting director recently confirmed they would sign a new defender, whereas the Giallorossi talent’s name was written on some transfer strategy notes.
