Juventus are favourites to sign Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie and are also tracking Atalanta players Mattia Caldara and Andrea Conti.

The Bianconeri have been closely tracking Kessie, as confirmed by Cesena Director of Sport, Rino Foschi, where the Ivorian midfielder spent the 2015/16 season on loan.


In an interview with RadioVS, transfer journalist Luca Momoli reported Juve as the favourites to sign Kessie, but they may not stop there. According to Momoli, the Bianconeri are working closely with Atalanta and may consider making offers for young talents Mattia Caldara and Andrea Conti.


Foschi has dubbed Caldara ‘the new Andrea Barzagli’, calling the under-21 international ‘the best young Italian player’ in the game, while Conti has been a revelation at right-back for La Dea.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Lecco-native called Dani Alves his ‘role-model’, declaring: “He’s fullback with a lot of motivation and technique.”
