Juventus are thinking about a move for Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic if his move to Inter Milan completely falls through.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who also report that the Nerazzurri would rather sign Roberto Pereyra than keep hold of Stefano Sensi if they miss out on Samardzic.

Samardzic’s move to Inter is not quite dead in the water yet. Udinese are trying to work to patch the deal up, according to reports.

But the impasse between Inter and Samardzic’s representatives has put the move in great doubt.

Unless some agreement can be found between the Nerazzurri and the 21-year-old’s entourage, the deal is off.

And one club who are watching the situation with interest are Inter’s Derby d’Italia rivals Juventus.

Juventus Eyeing Up Samardzic If Inter Move Falls Apart

The Bianconeri have been interested in signing Samardzic for some time.

The club’s Sporting Director Cristiano Giuntoli is an admirer of the Serbian international.

Therefore, Tuttosport reports, there is every possibility that the Turin giants could try and capitalize on the situation with Samardzic’s move to Inter.

Juventus are still seeking a midfielder to add creativity to their squad before the summer transfer window closes. Samardzic would be the kind of profile they are after.

Therefore, the Bianconeri and Giuntoli will await developments in the midfielder’s situation with Inter.

If a deal to join the Nerazzurri is definitively off, Juventus could well decide to swoop in in the closing stages of the window.

Inter Would Rather Sign Pereyra Than Keep Sensi

If Samardzic’s move to Inter does definitively collapse, then this will leave the Nerazzurri needing to sort their midfield out.

One option would be to simply reintegrate Stefano Sensi into the squad.

However, Tuttosport report, that is not the one that Inter prefer.

The 28-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of next June. Therefore, Inter would likely have to extend Sensi’s deal to keep him around.

Instead, the newspaper anticipate, if the Nerazzurri miss out on Samardzic they’ll try to sign Roberto Pereyra.
