Juventus continues to pursue Nicol Zaniolo closely despite the anticipated arrival of Angel Di Maria. The versatile player is under contract with Roma through 2024, but the two parties are unable to come to terms on a renewal. As a result, the Bianconeri are aiming to seize the opportunity and sign the 22-year-old.
