Report – Juventus targets 20-year-old Empoli star

June 20, 2022 - 11:59 pm

Empoli played some of the finest football in Serie A last season, which helped them to finish the campaign in 14th place, and avoid a relegation scrap.

Their game plan is being executed by some of the finest young players in Italy and one of them is Mattia Viti.

The 20-year-old plays as a defender for them, and he featured in 20 league matches last season.

Clubs are paying attention, and one of them is Juventus, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The report claims the Bianconeri are not the only club looking to add him to their squad, with Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg also in the running.

Empoli will not stand in the way of the player if he wants to leave and they have set an asking price of 20m.

That fee might seem a lot, but they know they have a top player on their hands and they are prepared to wait for him to develop into a quality player.

Juve FC Says

Viti will become a top Italian talent in the not-so-distant future if he keeps developing well.

Juve knows he has potential, and they will love to sign him now even if it means allowing him to remain on loan Empoli for at least one more campaign so he can keep getting regular playing time.

    The biggest mistake this kid can make is join Juve. They will kill his career. Young players just don’t play for Juve. Shameful but true.

      It makes good business for juve to buy and then loan back these players. But it makes bad business for the players. Even if they are playing more on these teams, they dont always develop. Sometimes it stunts growth. You always have Juve or the mother club in the back of your mind. You need a really strong mentality. I think gatti might actually have that. Like a chiellini did. This guy Vitti, i dont know. But hopefully. These kind of deals are like playing the lottery and to provide distraction from what they are going to do to improve the team now.
