Juventus are preparing an offer for Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo who missed Roma’s first summer friendly on Saturday.

The Italy starlet is Juventus’ next big target following the signings of Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria.

He missed Roma’s first pre-season friendly yesterday and although the club explained that Zaniolo is dealing with physical issues, today’s edition of Gazzetta quotes the player’s entourage saying that ‘reasons related to the market’ are also behind José Mourinho’s choice.

Zaniolo is likely to leave Roma in the summer and according to Gazzetta, he has reached an agreement in principle with Juventus.

The Giallorossi are open to loaning the player provided that the deal comes with an obligation to buy and Juventus are happy to get the player with this formula.

However, the offer from Turin hasn’t arrived yet, because the Old Lady first needs to sell Matthijs de Ligt, who has offers from Chelsea and Bayern Munich.

Once the Serie A giants finalise the defender’s sale, they will make an offer to sign Zaniolo on loan with an obligation to buy for a fee in the region of €50m.
