Emil Holm the Leading Target for Derby d’Italia Giants

Sweden and Spezia wingback Emil Holm is the subject of great transfer interest from top Italian outfits, including Juventus, Inter, Milan, Fiorentina, Atalanta and Napoli. The Cinque Terre club’s relegation to Serie B has pushed Holm on the brink of a transfer, but there has been only one proposal so far – from Atalanta’s end.

La Dea’s €7M offer for Holm is deemed low by the Ligurian outfit, leaving the bigger clubs with the upper hand to execute the deal with their financial superiority.

According to Tuttosport (via Tuttomercatoweb), it is Derby d’Italia rivals Inter and Juventus who are leading the pack to sign Holm from Spezia. An offer in the range of €12-15M is expected to lure Spezia’s attention, perhaps in the form of an initial loan deal, with an obligation to buy.

However, the inclusion of a player could lower the cost of the Holm operation. The Nerazzurri have Primavera striker Francesco Pio Esposito in mind, with the academy product set to join Spezia on loan regardless of the Holm situation.

Meanwhile, Juventus could offer Luca Pellegrini in return, with the ex-Lazio loanee set to depart the club permanently.
