Atalanta joins Juventus in the race for teenage centre-back

Juventus remains committed to improving their squad with young players, and the Bianconeri are already looking for the next addition.

Under Thiago Motta, even more youngsters are expected to gain prominence and be promoted to the senior team.

The former Bologna coach did fine work with young players at his former club and is tasked with ensuring Juve’s youngsters do not stagnate at the club.

However, the Bianconeri are still committed to signing more talent, and the latest on their radar is Giovanni Leoni.

The 17-year-old performed well while on loan at Sampdoria from Padova last season, and Juve wants to add him to their squad.

The Bianconeri believe he is one of the finest talents in Italian football at the moment and want him to continue his development in their system.

However, a report on Tuttojuve claims Atalanta has now joined the race for his signature and will give Juve competition in the pursuit.

Juve FC Says

We have the U19 and Next Gen teams for a reason, and Giovanni Leoni can play on both teams to prove he is ready to compete on our first team.

Motta transformed the careers of some fine youngsters at Bologna, and we expect him to do the same in Turin.
