Juventus continue Strootman push

Juventus are reportedly not giving up on Kevin Strootman, offering Roma a total €45m.

The Bianconeri have been repeatedly linked with the Dutch midfielder this season, but understandably the Lupi are not keen to sell.

Despite that, calciomercato.com reports that the Old Lady will push to sign him until the last minute of the transfer window, and they’re prepared to raise their offer.

The website believes the last offer was around €40m once bonuses are included, and now Juve are prepared to offer €45m, with at least €35m being money up front.

Strootman has a release clause of €45m which isn’t valid until next summer, but the champions see that as the asking price for Strootman.

If the Lupi reject the offer then Juve could increase the bonuses involved, though it’s thought negotiations will be difficult.
