Juventus are considering rivalling Inter to sign midfielder Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo during the summer transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Bianconeri are aiming to sign the 22-year-old on an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy him permanently as they had with Manuel Locatelli.
Frattesi’s form this season has made him a major target for the Nerazzurri to reinforce their midfield, as they see him as having the right profile and room to grow.
However, the Bianconeri have also taken an interest in the young Italian especially given his proven goalscoring from his position, a characteristic which they are largely lacking in their central players at the moment.
Whereas Inter have been pursuing Frattesi for some time, Juventus have more recently stepped up their interest with both the player’s entourage and with Sassuolo.
The Neroverdi are asking for a fee of €25 million for Frattesi, and the Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri could go head to head to sign him.
