Interest in Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante is hotting up with three Serie A teams and a whole host of European clubs keeping tabs on him.

Inter, Juventus and Roma have long courted the Milan academy graudate, who appears destined for a bright future at one of Europe’s top clubs.

Corriere di Torino however report that Juventus are cooling their interest on the basis they have failed to strike a deal with Atalanta over a €25 million transfer and face competition from both Inter and Roma. Atalanta are understood to be wanting no less than €30 million for the young Italian midfielder. They further report that Juventus are now looking at Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini instead of Cristante and may have to pay somewhere between €25-29 million for the former Sassuolo man.

Juventus cooling their interest is good news for Inter who will have one less team to fend off but it will not be welcome news for Roma who presumably wanted to pair Cristante and Pellegrini together.
