Juventus plan for Ferran Torres

Juventus could try to get the upper hand over Liverpool for Ferran Torres by offering Valencia Mattia De Sciglio or Daniele Rugani, claims Tuttosport.

The attacking winger just turned 20 a few weeks ago, but has been in the Valencia first team squad since January 2018.

He contributed six goals and seven assists in 35 competitive games this season, attracting interest from Liverpool, among others.

Although there is a €100m release clause, it’s reported the club would accept €60m, because Ferran Torres has rejected a renewal on the contract that expires in June 2021.

According to Tuttosport newspaper, Juventus hope to lower that price-tag even further by including a player in the exchange.

Valencia are short on quality defenders, so the proposal would be either full-back De Sciglio – who is also wanted by Paris Saint-Germain after January negotiations fell through – or centre-back Rugani.

Tuttosport also suggest Juve could have the benefit of the doubt because of a strong rapport between Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and Valencia patron Peter Lim.
