Juventus Fine-tune Transfer Market Plans in Meeting

After the American trip, Massimiliano Allegri and the top Juventus directors examined the plans for the final stretch of the summer transfer market window in an internal summit. The coach asked for a left winger, as Federico Chiesa will return in late September or early October.

As per TuttoSport, the Bianconeri are ready to step up their efforts to sign Filip Kostic. However, it’s not easy to bend the resistance of Eintracht Frankfurt. They recently turned down a €15M offer plus €5M add-ons from West Ham, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports. Although, the Serb might put pressure on his current club to facilitate the move to the Old Lady.

In addition, Allegri urged the Juventus execs to find a backup striker and a midfield maestro on the transfer market. Alvaro Morata remains the top choice for the first role. The club will shift its attention to other options only late in the summer.

The Bianconeri have recently been linked to Giacomo Raspadori. They like him a lot, but he’s not a priority, also due to his lofty price tag. They met his agents yesterday and requested to bide time to see whether they could concoct a transfer near deadline day, Gianluca Di Marzio informs. Napoli might seal the deal early next week if they moved decisively, as per Alfredo Pedullà.

Our Take on the Final Transfer Market Moves by Juventus

The Bianconeri might wind up backing their way into what should have been their first signing of the summer, but the timing means little if Kostic does arrive. Their interest in Morata has reached obsession level at this point, which may cost them some good opportunities.
