The Brazilian is currently Juve’s number two goalkeeper behind Gianluigi Buffon, but the Bianconeri are banking on using the vast bulk of the proceeds from his sale to finance a move for the Gunners stopper.
Currently there are two bids on the table for Neto. Watford’s offer of €9million is Juventus’s preferred choice, but Spanish club Valencia have also bid €6million.
Neto wants to join the La Liga side, but Juve don’t want to lose out on €3million as they will need it to try and match Arsenal’s valuation for Szczesny. The Gunners are holding out for €15million, and so far the Serie A champions have only mustered a paltry €4m. The €9m from Neto’s sale to the Hornets would go a long way to Szczesny’s move to Italy finally going through.
