Juventus Are Interested In Signing AC Milan Striker And Want To Include Winger In Swap Deal

Milan are looking for a right winger but are unlikely to let go of Leao after his incredible season.

Juventus v ACF Fiorentina - Serie A Photo by Emilio Andreoli/Getty Images are reporting that Juventus are interested in AC Milan youngster Rafael Leao and are willing to send Federico Bernardeschi in the opposite direction to entice the Rossoneri. The report notes that both players are valued at about 30 million euros each hence a straight swap is considered plausible.

Milan were interested in Bernardeschi last summer as they look for a right winger who can deliver on a regular basis. Milan are still in need for a right winger but are unlikely to agree to allow Leao to leave as part of any deal.

Tancredi Palmeri is now reporting that Juventus offered Milan a swap deal where they would send former Fiorentina midfielder Federico Bernadeschi in exchange for striker Rafael Leao. He reports that Milan turned this down as they have no interest in letting go of Leao who is considered a major prospect. The striker is growing this season and is becoming a more consistent player scoring 5 goals and providing 3 assists thus far.
