Reports: Juve push for Pinamonti

Reports this afternoon claim Juventus are pushing hard to sign Genoa striker Andrea Pinamonti and Roma full-back Riccardo Calafiori.

Genoa bought Pinamonti €18m in February, but Inter have first option on the 21-year-old.

Despite that, Tuttosport and Alfredo Pedulla state Juve are ready to dive in, already holding talks with his agent Mino Raiola.

He supported his case for a move to Juve with his first goal in eight months on Tuesday, which came in a 3-1 defeat to the Old Lady.

He has six in total for the Rossoblu in 25 games and could prove a cheaper alternative to Arkadiusz Milik, as well as being younger, for the role of backup centre-forward.

A transfer would also suit Genoa owner Enrico Preziosi, who must raise funds to keep his club afloat.

Pedulla adds Juve are also negotiating with Raiola for left-back Calafiori, who plays for Roma’s Primavera team.

The 18-year-old has a contract with the Giallorossi until 2022, but efforts to tie him down to a new one remain fruitless.

Inter and Manchester United have also been linked with the Italy Under-19 international.
