Juventus still in talks for Nicolò Zaniolo

Andy Mattioli

Juventus are still interested in Roma attacker Nicolò Zaniolo, but want to prioritize player sales before pursuing the talented 22-year-old whom Roma are in no hurry to off-load.

As reported by Tuttosport, Juve executive Federico Cherubini is in contact with Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto, with the Bianconeri intent on signing Zaniolo on loan with an obligation to buy or with the addition of a counterpart – Roma are not interested in the latter option.

First, however, Juventus want to secure Matthijs de Ligt’s exit: the Dutch defender is rumored to be close to a switch to Chelsea.

With De Ligt’s sale, Juventus would then be able to eventually fulfill Roma’s financial demands for Zaniolo.
