Juventus have reportedly lined up Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso as a back-up option if their deal for Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli falls through.

According to Calciomercato, Juventus will make a move for Tolisso if they do not manage to sign Locatelli before the start of the 2021-22 season. The Frenchman has fallen down the pecking order at the German club and signing him will not be difficult for Juventus. However, the Bianconeri will only move for the midfielder if Sassuolo does not agree upon the sale of Locatelli.

Juventus have also been linked with a move for Barcelona’s Miralem Pjanic, with Massimiliano Allegri reportedly keen on reuniting with the Bosnian this summer.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Chiellini will sign a one-year extension with Juventus in the coming days. The club hold him in high regard both on and off the pitch and are keen to have him stay and help usher the team into a new era.

Lazio are reportedly interested in signing Daniele Rugani this summer. The Italian is out of favor at Juventus and the club are ready to part ways with him.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, via LazioNews24, Maurizio Sarri is keen on signing Rugani to help shore up Lazio’s backline this summer. The Italian spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Rennes and Cagliari after finding playing time hard to come by at Juventus.

Rugani’s current contract runs until 2023 and Juventus will want to cash-in on the Italian now rather than risk losing him for free later.
