Juventus do not give up on bringing Kevin Strootman in - 'Tuttosport' believe.
Italian season is getting closer and the Bianconeris are still trying to secure a central midfielder. Reinforcing the center of the field is now the Turin's priority and at this moment on their radar there are two goals - Emre Can and Kevin Strootman. The former is a preferred option, but due to the difficult negotiations with Liverpool, "Old Lady" decided to move bravely for the Dutch.
The first offer for Roma midfielder was made a few days ago and was worth 30 million euros. Now "Tuttosport" inform that it has been increased. Despite this, Roma remain relentless and are not in a good position to negotiate with one of the main rivals in the championship fight. The Giallorossis have told the finalists of the previous edition of the Champions League that if they think about bringing in the player they must first activate the buyout clause.
There is a record in Strootman's contract, under which the clubs concerned can claim the former PSV player for 45 million euros. The Romans are not going to consider the lower amounts. For the "Old Lady" this is not an excessive amount, but still they are trying to figure out the situation and continue negotiating.
