Juventus director Giovanni Manna will reportedly travel to London next week to negotiate the transfers of Denis Zakaria and Arthur Melo to West Ham.
The Bianconeri are ready to welcome new sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli, who has left Napoli to head to Turin, and they’re still hard at work in the market in the meantime.
Manna was promoted from the Juventus Under-23 team recently to work on strengthening Massimiliano Allegri’s first team and he’ll continue in this role despite Giuntoli’s imminent arrival.
As reported by Tuttosport via TMW, one of Manna and Juventus’ goals now is to find new homes for unneeded midfielders Zakaria and Arthur, so he’ll travel to London next week to continue discussing possible deals.
West Ham are interested in the pair, so Manna will head to the English capital on Wednesday to personally negotiate their possible transfers.
The departures of the two midfielders free up a little space in the Juventus squad, allowing Giuntoli to focus on bringing in some reinforcements.
