Juventus Plotting More Moves to Expand Their Italian Colony

In the last couple of windows, Juventus have gone back to targeting Serie A players and Italian talents in particular. It has been their modus operandi for most of their history, but they had switched to a more international flair in the final years of the Fabio Paratici era. They are fully back at it now and are planning more additions, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The latest example of their strategy was Federico Gatti. The Bianconeri had shown interest early. However, other teams were closer to him before they won the race with a swift move and a sizeable offer. It should not be long before Roberto Mancini calls up the 23-year-old, the publication adds.

The Old Lady has already started pursuing Nicolò Zaniolo and Giacomo Raspadori. The two attackers will be their primary target next summer. Genoa’s Andrea Cambiaso is atop their shortlist should they part ways with one of their current fullbacks. Alessio Romagnoli has been on their radar as a potential free-agent acquisition for a long time.

Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri will take a close look at Nicolò Rovella and Nicolò Fagioli in the pre-season, and they are already part of the pool of the Italian national team. At least one of the two has serious chances to be on the roster for 2022-2023. The coach is high on the home-grown midfielder, who is faring well at Cremonese. The Grigiorossi are also helping the growth of Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Carnesecchi. The Bianconeri are monitoring him for the future.
