According to fresh reports from Sky Sports Italia, Serie A champions Juventus have sent an emissary to Monaco in order to start talks over a number of potential deals.
Such rumours, however, have yet to be confirmed or denied and the North London duo could face the prospect of a new competitor for their targets’ signatures if fresh reports are to be believed.
“Marotta and Paratici, the two directors in charge of transfer moves, are heading to Montecarlo in the next few hours. Juventus has been interested in midfielder Kondogbia, who is also being followed closely by Milan. But there could be other targets including Fabinho, Martial and Abdennour,” the report says.
22-year-old Kondogbia in particular is likely to have a number of suitors following his wonderful campaign at Monaco, especially considering the market for a top defensive midfielder.
The full French international favours well compared to Arsenal’s Francis Coquelin, a difficult task when taking into account the former Charlton Athletic loan star’s impact last season.
With speculation over Paul Pogba’s future in Turn rife, it comes as little surprise to see Juventus linked with Kondogbia and it only further highlights the player’s ability to attract Europe’s elite clubs
