Juventus target PSG midfielder Marco Verratti

Now that the season is closing, it seems every day a new transfer rumour is created or re-created.

Juventus appear to have a genuine interest in signing Marco Verratti this summer.

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Juventus are targeting Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti.

The Italy international was signed by Paris Saint-Germain in July 2015 from Pescara for a fee of 12 million euros. The 25-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Verratti has played 239 times for Paris Saint-Germain since signing from Pescara, scoring eight goals and creating 43 assists in that time.

The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Italy.

The Italy international has been in outstanding form this season.

Marco Verratti has represented Italy at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 16 caps, before making his senior international debut in August 2012. As a member of Italy national football team, Verratti won 25 caps and he scored one goal.

Juventus are in the market for a new midfielder when the transfer window reopens.

The Juventus manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move in the coming transfer window.

Massimiliano Allegri is a long term admirer of Marco Verratti and believes he can get the most out of the Italy international.

According to Football Italia (via Corriere dello Sport) , “The Bianconeri were close to signing the Italian international during his time at Pescara, but he ultimately moved to Ligue 1 in the summer of 2012. Given that Verratti grew up supporting the Old Lady the rumours about a move to Turin have never gone away, and today’s Corriere dello Sport says he’s once again being targeted. Juve are looking to sign a top-class midfielder this summer, and the PSG man is one of their two top targets, alongside Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio.”

Paris Saint-Germain would be wise to keep the Italy international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Juventus.

How strong that interest is and whether Juventus will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
