Juventus discuss Koulibaly and Milenkovic

Juventus director Federico Cherubini met with agent Fali Ramadani to discuss both Kalidou Koulibaly and Nikola Milenković. The Bianconeri are in the market for new centre-backs following the departure of Giorgio Chiellini and the expected transfer of Matthijs De Ligt.

Sky Sport Italia and a number of other Italian news outlets report that Juve management met with Ramadani in Milan to sound out the prospects of signing Koulibaly, who remains the clubs number one target.

The deal is expected to be difficult, given the historical rivalry between the Bianconeri and Napoli, while Partenopei president Aurelio De Laurentiis has always maintained that he will not sell another player to Juve after the Gonzalo Higuain transfer.

This mornings La Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Old Lady have offered Koulibaly between €6-6.5m per season while their offer to Napoli is €30m.

The player is reportedly not keen on a move to Turin and would prefer to move overseas with Barcelona his preferred destination.

Juve are also looking to Milenkovic who has a year left on his contract with La Viola and could be available at a reasonable price.
