Juventus Join Milan in Race to Sign Ligue 1 Star

Youssouf Fofana’s career could continue in Serie A after Juventus joined Milan in the race to sign the sought-after Monaco midfielder. According to Alfredo Pedulla, the Turin giants have sounded out the club from the French principality about the 25-year-old’s availability.
Milan’s interest in the 18-capped France international is long-standing. But as Fofana warms up for Les Blues’ heavily anticipated Euro 2024 campaign, his list of suitors welcomes another household name.
After Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus have inquired about the ex-Strasbourg man’s services. Irrespective of their ongoing talks with Aston Villa over Douglas Luiz, Thiago Motta’s men are working on adding another top-class midfielder to their squad.
Teun Koopmeiners of Atalanta has long been on their radar. Yet, their recent actions suggest Juventus might be ready to give up this route, perhaps terrified by Liverpool’s genuine interest in the Dutch star. That track is still hot, though, even though the ex-AZ Alkmaar man withdrew from the Netherlands’ Euro 2024 squad due to injury.
Fofana has been superb for Monaco in the past four years. However, his contract runs out at the end of next season. Therefore, they’re willing to listen to offers for their in-demand ace and have set a reasonable €15 million asking price.
That’s well within reach for both Serie A sides. It’s only a matter of determination. By the looks of things, Juventus are far more ambitious than Milan. Their pursuit of Luiz speaks volumes, with sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli also working on extending Adrien Rabiot’s contract.
