After breaking through the ranks of Genoa and securing a starting place with the first team at the age of 18, Nicolò Rovella has caught the attention of Serie A greats.
However, Juventus were the quickest to respond, securing a deal for the youngster in January. Although the Bianconeri now own the Player Card, he was allowed to stay at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium to gain vital experience at the highest level.
The initial agreement between the clubs stipulates that the Italian will continue to play for Davide Ballardini’s side until the summer of 2022.
Still, some expected the 19-year-old to move to Turin earlier than expected, either to be part of Max Allegri’s squad for the next campaign or to be added to swap deals (mostly the transfer of Manuel Locatelli).
however, Tuttosport (via Calciomercato) Now wait for both sides to fulfill their original deal and Rovella to stay in Genoa for another season.
Perhaps this would prove to be the best solution for the youngster, as gaining playing time at Juventus will not be an easy task for him at the moment.
Moreover, Sassuolo seems to want a cash-only operation when it comes to selling Locatelli, which could have prompted Juventus to keep Rovella with the Ligurians.
Last season, the young midfielder featured in 20 Serie A appearances, providing two assists for his teammates.
