Juventus in Advanced Talks with Sassuolo Starlet for Summer Move

Young Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori is reportedly the number one priority of Juventus to replace the outbound Paulo Dybala ahead of the 2022/23 season. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via SassuoloNews), Max Allegri wants to change the outlook of his Bianconeri side by reinforcing the attack line with young talents.

La Vecchia Signora want to take advantage of the positive relationship with the Neroverdi, having recently onboarded central midfielder Manuel Locatelli from their ranks. The Emilia-Romagna natives have already made it clear that for the right offer, they are ready to offload one of their most valuable assets, and negotiations are already said to be at an advanced level between the two clubs.

The 22-year-old player’s agent Tulli Tinti has already held multiple talks with the Bianconeri.

With a contract that expires only in the summer of 2024, €28m is the youngster’s transfer market value. Keeping in mind the two more years he has on his contract, Sassuolo are on the favorable end of negotiations to demand an asking price suiting their own needs,

Massimiliano Allegri envisions a change in formation with the potential onboarding of another Italian talent in Nicolo Zaniolo. He expects to play Dusan Vlahovic as a lone center-forward, with Zaniolo, Federico Chiesa and Raspadori as his support in a forward-three outlay in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The Italy international has 17 goals in 72 appearances for the Neroverdi.
