Juventus step up Can pursuit

It’s reported Juventus are intensifying their pursuit of Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, who refused a renewal.

The Bianconeri are looking to bring in a defensive midfielder, with Blaise Matuidi and Steven N’Zonzi thought to be on their shortlist.

However, Can is believed to be their ideal target and this morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport says contact has intensified with Liverpool.

The newspaper reports that the German international has rejected a new contract at Anfield, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Juventus €25m for Emre Can

Reports are growing rapidly in Italy that Juventus have chosen Emre Can for their midfield and are closing on Liverpool’s €30m (£27.1m) asking price.

It’s no secret that Max Allegri has requested a prestigious reinforcement for the middle of the park after losing the Champions League Final to Real Madrid.

La Gazzetta dello Sport already suggested on Tuesday that Juve were leaning away from Blaise Matuidi of Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi towards Can.

Juventus watched N'Zonzi today

Juventus director Fabio Paratici was in the stands for Sevilla’s friendly with Everton today, watching Steven N’Zonzi.

The Bianconeri continue their search for a midfielder and Paris Saint-Germain are asking for over €20m for Blaise Matuidi.

As he is 30 years old and in the final season of his contract, Juve consider that to be excessive.

N’Zonzi is slightly younger, but he is locked down to Sevilla by a €40m release clause, though Juve hope to negotiate it down, perhaps by including player exchanges.

Matuidi wrong man for Juve

Juventus want a new midfielder, but Blaise Matuidi is not the answer, writes Vincent Van Genechten.

The Juventus midfield has been somewhat of an enigma the past few seasons. Fans of the Old Lady will fondly remember the trio of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba roaming the pitch in 2015. The first two were let go and Manchester United made former player Pogba the most expensive footballer ever last summer.

In came Miralem Pjanic in a stunning Juve move, weakening scudetto rivals Roma with one swift transfer. The Bosnian maestro was paired with Sami Khedira, as Claudio Marchisio battled another injury riddled period. With splendid success.

Juventus hold firm on Matuidi

Juventus are reportedly unwilling to raise their offer for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi above €15m.

The Bianconeri are looking for a midfielder this summer, and have rekindled their interest in the French international after a transfer collapsed at the last minute last summer.

According to today’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Matuidi remains at the top of the shortlist, but Juve won’t raise their offer above €15m.

PSG want at least €20m, meaning the two parties have reached something of an impasse.

Juve target Matic to Man Utd

Juventus seem to have missed out on one of their midfield targets, as Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic is ready for Manchester United.

The Bianconeri had suggested Matic as one of the potential additions to their squad, along with Blaise Matuidi of Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi.

According to multiple reports this afternoon, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Matic.

The asking price had been around £50m, which was already more than enough to put Juventus off the idea.

Juventus seek William Carvalho

Juventus are ready to challenge Arsenal for the signature of William Carvalho, who has a €40m clause in his Sporting CP contract, according to Tuttosport.

While Juve continue negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for Blaise Matuidi, they are also targeting Carvalho as a younger option for their midfield.
