Juventus want Raspadori to replace Dybala

Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori has become Juve’s priority target to replace Paulo Dybala this summer. The talented youngster has enjoyed a strong season with the Neroverdi, attracting attention from a number of Serie A sides.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Raspadori is at the top of the list for the Bianconeri this season as they look to replace Dybala when he leaves at the end of his contract in June.

According to Gazzetta, the Old Lady have already begun talks with the striker’s agent Tullio Tinti who also represents former Juve midfielder and coach Andrea Pirlo.

Gazzetta suggest Raspadori matches the criteria that Juve are looking for as he’s young, earns a relatively low amount and would be within their price range as Sassuolo are asking €30m.

Juve will reportedly look to loan him initially and then sign him outright in a deal similar to the ones that bought Manuel Locatelli and Federico Chiesa to Turin.

Raspadori is open to the idea of joining Juventus and Sassuolo are open to selling him to the Bianconeri following Locatelli’s move last summer.
