Juve & Inter set to battle it out for the same transfer targets in summer

Juve and Inter look set to battle it out for the same transfer targets this summer, after fighting it out for Dejan Kulusevski in January.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that both sides are preparing to compete for the same transfer targets once the season ends.

The two clubs battled to sign Atalanta’s on-loan midfielder Kulusevski, currently playing at Parma, in January.

The Bianconeri won that fight, with Kulusevski opting to join Juve in a €35m + bonuses deal.

Inter then resorted to signing Christian Eriksen from Tottenham as a response to missing out on the Swede.

The Milan daily speculates that Juve and Inter could do battle for Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa and Brescia’s Sandro Tonali this summer.

Furthermore, it seems that RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is also of interest to both sides, should they sell Lautaro Martinez and Gonzalo Higuain respectively.

Juve could also make a bid directly to Inter for outcast Mauro Icardi, who is likely to return to Italy after reports that the striker isn’t happy playing in the shadows of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain.
