Juventus have been satisfied with their summer transfer campaign, however, are also observing the club's long-term prospects. In this regard, Tuttosport claimed the Old Lady identified 3 players to bring to Turin in years to come. Alongside Les Parisiens midfielder Rabiot, Empoli's Antonino La Gumina and Fiorentina's attacker Federico Chiesa were also mentioned on the list. The fact the players are all in their early 20s and their current quality have allegedly made Juve follow their progress.
Adrien Rabiot has been claimed to be unsellable for now, however, AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona and Arsenal have been amongst the interested parties for a while. The Bianconeri are still believed to be targeting to secure the French midfielder next summer on a free transfer.
Last months, PSG's new manager Thomas Tuchel spoke on the matter: "Of course, I would love to see him stay. Everyone has seen his potential and there's room for improvement. When it comes to his contractual situation, it's he who has the last word. It's all up to him, he could stay and adapt to our style or leave the club to start a new experience."
Would you like to see him in Bianconeri colours next summer?
