According to a new report from the transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are in advanced talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a possible swap deal between the clubs.
If this reported swap deal was to go through, Mattia De Sciglio would head towards the French capital while Layvin Kurzawa would move in the opposite direction to Turin.
But Juventus are, according to Di Marzio himself, not entirely convinced and will be taking a bit more time to ponder their options. Maurizio Sarri sees his defender as a good squad player and is unsure whether letting him go is the right decision.
Even though the clubs seem to already be in advanced negotiations, nothing is set just yet as the Bianconeri could be the ones to pull out of the deal if they deem it dissatisfactory.
The 27-year-old right-back has been used rather scarcely in the ongoing 2019/20 campaign, tallying only 618 minutes across nine games in all competitions for Juventus.
Needless to say, despite Di Marzio stating Sarri sees him as a valuable squad player, he still hasn’t really been picked nearly as often enough to warrant such a claim.
Of course, Juventus also have to consider the player they’d be getting in return – Kurzawa has similar experience over in the French capital, mustering only 928 minutes under his belt for Thomas Tuchel across all competitions.
By the looks of it, this would be a swap of fringe players looking to change their fortunes elsewhere. But would that actually be an upgrade for either of the European titans or the players themselves?
It seems like they would end up in similar situations only at different clubs.
