From Italy: Ranieri wants Juve youngster at Leicester, club want €20m

Italian giants Juventus are one of the most active teams in the transfer market every season, with several players leaving and signing for them in every window. 

Juventus have youngsters out on loan, youngsters at other clubs on shared ownership, and options to sign players... it's a situation that could rival the variety of Chelsea loan arrangements. 

One of their latest signings is Gabonese midfielder Mario Lemina, who spent last season on loan at the Turin club managing just over 700 minutes of football in the Serie A. His move from Marseille was made permantn in April, due to  a clause in the original deal. 

Juventus have signed the player permanently for around €9m, and according to Italian website Gazzetta di Parma, Leicester City could now be interested in signing the 22-year-old.

It is reported Ranieri is keen on signing Lemina, but Juventus want at least €20m The player hasn't made an impact in Italy, and interest from Leicester doesn't make too much sense, and surely they certainly wouldn't spend €20m on him.

One to keep half an eye on.
