Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus are interested in signing Brescia starlet Sandro Tonali, with the new coach appreciating the Inter target, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
The report details how the Bianconeri, with their newly appointed coach, have re-ignited their interest in the 20-year-old Italian midfielder, who is contracted to Brescia until 2022. Pirlo is a fan of the player and so Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici is ready to restart talks with his agent Beppe Bozzo and Brescia president Massimo Cellino to discuss a possible transfer.
Inter are still in pole position to sign Tonali, the report continues, and have already reached an agreement with the 20-year-old Italian, and so are confident of securing his signature eventually this summer. The Bianconeri’s alternative to Tonali is Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli as well as Roma’s Nicolò Zaniolo, but it’s unlikely that the Giallorossi talisman will leave after the change of ownership at the club.
