It’s no secret that Juventus are interested in Valencia’s winger Ferran Torres. But who isn’t?
As per Spanish media, Juventus have entered talks with Valencia for Ferran Torres.
The 20-year-old winger has played all his life at Valencia. He has made his way through the youth system at the Spanish club and made his senior debut in 2017.
The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain.
Ferran Torres has represented Spain at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 45 caps and scoring 11 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Juventus.
Torres is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Juventus this summer.
His arrival would give Juventus some much needed tactical flexibility.
Maurizio Sarri is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Juventus are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
According to the report, “Juventus have opened negotiations to sign highly-rated Valencia winger Ferran Torres this summer, report Onda Cero. Torres has enjoyed an excellent campaign at Los Che but his contract expires in the summer of 2021 and his future is now said to be in doubt. The 20-year-old penned a new contract with Los Che in April 2018 in a deal which runs through until next summer with a reported €100m release clause, although due to the expiration date on the deal the Spanish club may lower this value. Valencia are said to be hopeful of tieing the highly-rated winger Torres down to a new deal to ward off interest from clubs, including Barcelona and Real Madrid – whose interest was outlined in a report in Diario AS this December. Torres made his first team debut in November 2017 and has made 80 senior appearances for the club since, becoming a regular under Marcelino Garcia Toral and then Albert Celades. The winger starred in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Armenia last year, netting both goals in a 2-0 final victory over Portugal and is now a member of the Under-21 side. It is claimed that Madrid have been interested in Torres since his pre-teen days at the Mestalla and could make their move again this year.”

Valencia are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the winger, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Good signing for Juventus?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Signing the 20-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Sarri.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Juventus.
It will be interesting to see if Juventus can beat their rivals to the winger’s signature.
