A host of Premier League and Championship clubs have asked Juventus if they can take Stephy Mavididi on loan next season, TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal.
The 21-year-old former Arsenal man joined Juve last summer, and spent the campaign with their Under-23s. However, his impressive form for their development side saw him handed his full debut late in the season – making him the first English player since David Platt to play for the Bianconieri.
Now a number of Premier League and Championship sides have asked Juve to let striker Mavididi join them for the upcoming season and help continue his development.
We can reveal Everton, Newcastle, Southampton, Burnley, Aston Villa, Leeds, Derby, Fulham and Middlesbrough are among those keen to take Mavidi.
The Derby-born frontman, who has been capped by England from U17s through to their Under-20s, stands at 6ft tall and is of Congolese descent.
Juventus are plotting to let a number of first teamers leave this summer, with reports on Monday claiming as many as five big-name stars will be shown the door as incoming new boss Maurizio Sarri looks to streamline the Old Lady’s squad.
