Juventus has expressed interest in acquiring Leicester City’s Timothy Castagne for their squad in the current transfer window, following Leicester’s relegation from the Premier League. With the need for a new right-back, Juventus sees the former Atalanta player as a suitable option.
Castagne is likely to be interested in the move as he seeks a club competing in a top-flight division. However, Leicester is in a financially stable position and would only be open to selling if the right offer is presented. Consequently, they have established an asking price for the player’s signature.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Leicester has set a price of 15 million euros to release Castagne from his contract. Considering his experience, this fee may not be exorbitant, but Juventus might hesitate to pay such a sum for a player who was part of a relegated team. Ultimately, negotiations between the two clubs will determine whether a deal can be reached.
Juve FC Says
The Premier League transfer market is inflated and we must be willing to pay a good fee to sign any player from there.
Castagne has experience in Italian football, having played for Atalanta before now, so we will sign a good player if we add him to our squad in this transfer window.
However, a move for him will not be easy, with some reports claiming Arsenal also wants to add him to their squad.
