Paratici wants 2 Juventus frontliners to join him at Spurs

Fabio Paratici hopes to bring two Juventus players with him to Tottenham this summer.

The departing Juve sporting director is reportedly set to be named new football chief of Spurs in the coming days.

And Gazzetta dello Sport via Fotboll Transfers says his first task upon his London move will be to return to Juve for veteran defender Leonardo Bonucci and midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Both players have been linked with Spurs in the past and the presence of Paratici is expected to help convince them about a move to England.

With Juve in need of selling players to ease their financial concerns, there isn't expected to be much push back should either player show a willingness to leave - at least from the board.

Now 34, Bonucci has a deal with Juve to 2024. Significantly, he is close to Max Allegri, who has just returned for a second spell in charge of the Bianconeri.

Meanwhile, Rabiot is a former Manchester City youth teamer and was signed by Paratici two years ago from PSG.
