By Football Itlia staff An article by Mario Tamaanen The Nerazzurri and Milan are in the market for a midfield duo in the summer.
While the Bianconeri want to strengthen their defence, Milan are looking for reinforcements at the back and Juventus want to add depth in the middle.
An analysis of the transfer window by Mario Tecco reveals that Juve and Milan have already made a deal for Gonzalo Higuain, but the Biancoli are also open to signing other midfielders.
The Nerazzuando are seeking a player with the ability to play alongside Andrea Barzagli, Miralem Pjanic and Miralen Kalinic, while the Milanese are looking to add more cover at the heart of their defence.
Juventus have been keen to sign a player like Gonzalo.
The Brazilian is a player that will make them a formidable rival for Barcelona in the upcoming Champions League.
Juventus’ desire to strengthen in the centre has led to an interest from Milan.
With Gonzalo as their number one, the Nerazzos have already agreed an agreement with Juventus over a €12m fee.
The agreement includes a €7.5m release clause that will be paid in July.
Juve have made a number of attempts to sign Gonzalo but have so far failed to agree an agreement.
However, the Biancocelesti have shown interest in signing Barzaglia, and Juventus have also made an offer for the Croatia international.
It is understood that Barzagil is willing to join Juve, while Juventus have been open to making an offer of around €12.5 million.
It is believed that Barzili has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, while Milan are also interested in signing Higuanyi.
