Juventus insist for Zaniolo, prepare second bid

Andy Mattioli

Juventus are still after Nicolò Zaniolo and consider him their number one priority for this transfer window. The Bianconeri are reportedly preparing their second bid for the 22-year-old.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve’s initial advances for the talented youngster were unsuccessful, with Roma promptly rejecting all suggested counterparts to be included in an eventual deal for Zaniolo.

The Giallorossi were quick to dismiss Arthur, Moise Kean and Weston McKennie as potential names of interest.

In the meantime, Juventus have already secured an agreement with Zaniolo himself, claims the Italian newspaper: the Bianconeri have reportedly offered the player a four-year contract worth €4 million per season.

Thus, Juventus do not intend to let up and are expect to advance a second bid, one compromised of €10 million for an initial loan plus an option for €35 million and add-ons. Roma are unlikely to accept this proposal, and are seeking around €60 million in cash.
