Juventus could end up selling Federico Chiesa in order to fund their own transfer market.

In fact, the Biaconeri have not excluded a sale of the Italian forward, reports Tuttosport.

The Turin-based club need to generate revenue to fund Thiago Motta’s requested signings of Riccardo Calafiori and Teun Koopmeiners and Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson who could replace Chiesa.

The newspaper claims Juventus may choose Chiesa as the sacrificial lamb as Roma remain at the window; the Giallorossi seem to consider the Italian winger the ideal fit for De Rossi’s desired 433 system.

Relations between Juventus and the player and his agent, Fali Ramadani, are excellent, but an agreement for a sale could be reached if the right were to come along.

However, competition for Chiesa remains fierce with the likes of Bayer Munich, Liverpool, Milan lining up in the race for the EURO champion.
