With the shock news of Leonardo Bonucci’s departure, Juve are now working to push through a deal for Fiorentina winger Federico Bernardeschi.
With two surprise transfers from the club, the Bianconeri are now working to consolidate and start signing players for the new season, with Bernardeschi next on the list.
Speaking with RadioVS yesterday, transfer journalist Niccolò Ceccarini explained that Juve and Fiorentina are close to an agreement, however Juve need to get closer to Fiorentina’s €50m price tag.
Bernardeschi told Gazzetta ‘who wouldn’t want to play for Juve?‘ and it’s been widely reported that the Bianconeri are his first choice.
Ceccarini gave his own view on the matter, telling RadioVS “In the end I think Bernardeschi will be a Juve player.”
Sky Sport Italian reported that Fiorentina were pushing to have Marko Pjaca included in the deal for Berna, but the Bianconeri refused as Allegri highly rates the player.
Goal Italia journalist Romeo Agresti also spoke with RadioVS and reinforced the view that Bernardeschi is on his way to Turin:
