Juventus to Tussle Bundesliga Giants for Empoli Starlet

Despite a downturn in form towards the end of last season. 20-year-old Viti played an instrumental part of the Azzurri’s campaign despite playing just 20 league games, drawing the attention of foreign sides and Juventus.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, two Bundesliga clubs are spearheading the race for his signature, along with Turin heavyweights. Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg are the Germans interested in the €20M defender, whose contract in Tuscany expires in the summer of 2025.

With three full seasons left on his existing contract, Empoli are in a demanding position regarding the asking price. Juventus are looking for reinforcements at the back, and the club would appear as the best option for Viti, who has also become a key cog for Italy U-21. With Giorgio Chiellini already gone, the Bianconeri are keen on strengthening the future of their backline. Inter and Sassuolo are two other clubs to have been linked with the left-footed youngster in previous weeks.
