Monaco appear to have a genuine interest in signing Claudio Marchisio this summer.
The 32-year-old has two years left on his current contract which expires in 2020.
Claudio Marchisio made 389 appearances across all competitions for Juventus, scoring 37 goals and supplying 42 assists in return.
His record for Italy is also impressive. Marchisio has scored five goals in 55 matches for Italy at senior level.
Leonardo Jardim wants to sign a new midfielder and Claudio Marchisio is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Marchisio and believes he can get the most out of the Italy international.
Monaco will be in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Marchisio has the talent to play many roles in midfield.
According to Football Italia (via Sport Mediaset and Juvenews.it) , “Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has emerged as a fresh target for French side Monaco. Sport Mediaset cites a report on Juvenews.it, which claims the move ‘would allow Marchisio to stay close to Turin and rediscover both stimulus and continuity’ after just 20 appearances over the past season. Furthermore, the principality outfit are described as ‘a welcome solution for family and personal reasons’, given the proximity of the two areas.”
