Juventus intend to sign either Manuel Locatelli from Sassuolo or return Miralem Pjanic, but not both, according to recent reports.
The Bianconeri are aiming to transform their midfield after Max Allegri took over from Andrea Pirlo.
Locatelli is definitely the first choice, but Sassuolo has so far rejected the proposal of a two-year loan with the possibility of purchase for a total of 35 million euros.
It is much below 40 million euros plus the 5 million euro bonuses offered by Arsenal, as Locatelli has his heart on Juve and will reject any other club.
Meanwhile, Pjanic is desperate to leave Barcelona after just one year, pushed by coach Ronald Koeman.
He would be on loan, but according to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Juventus will only be open to one of these players and not both.
