Juventus will sign a player to replace Bayern Munich-bound Matthijs de Ligt. Among the potential replacements, there are Inter target Gleison Bremer and other names.
Transfer market expert Daniele Longo reports that Juventus were interested in signing the Napoli target Kim Min-jae as a potential replacement for Matthijs de Ligt but have now turned their focus towards Gleison Bremer.
Inter have been making efforts to land the Brazilian defender for a long time. But so far, the Nerazzurri have not managed to get the deal over the line.
On the other hand, Napoli have gained a significant edge over Ligue 1 club Rennes in the pursuit of Min-jae. It is thought that the Frech side was on the brink of signing the South Korean, but Napoli Sporting Director Cristiano Giuntoli’s fantastic work has put the Italian club in the lead.
Napoli are close to triggering the defender’s release clause of around €19.5 million. The report insists that Min-jae is tempted by the idea of donning the blue shirt and playing in the Champions League alongside Victor Osimhen and Fabian Ruiz.
It is expected that he will leave Turkey for Italy in the coming hours to complete his desired transfer to Napoli. Juventus are understood to be out of the race.
