A few Italian elite teams have taken notice of Valencia’s latest revelation Javi Guerra. However, they will easily be priced out next summer if he keeps going. His valuation is rapidly increasing thanks to his stellar performances. He has bagged 3 goals and assisted once in 13 matches so far.

According to Matteo Moretto (via SOSFanta), Milan, Juventus, and Roma collected info ahead of a potential pursuit in June. Others will probably follow them considering his fast growth. But they have been met with a hefty request, €40/50M.

Javi Guerra started showing his worth near the end of last season when his side risked getting relegated. He scored a key goal against Real Valladolid to help them avoid the drop. After starting at Villarreal, he joined Los Che when he was 16 in 2019.

The youngster cut his teeth with Valencia’s B team, racking up 26 appearances before getting promoted permanently. Considering the cost of the deal, he’s likely to wind up in the Premier League eventually, where he has already found several suitors. His contract has a €100M release clause. He has 5 caps with Spain U-21.
