Martin Zubimendi has continued to impress with Real Sociedad, and has reportedly attracted the attention of Juventus and AC Milan ahead of the summer window.

The Bianconeri are expected to invest heavily in strengthening their midfield over the summer after losing Paul Pogba to a long-term ban in recent months. Nicolo Fagioli is also unavailable due to suspension, but will return just before the end of the season. Juventus have long had their sights set on Atalanta star Teun Koopmeiners, and are expected to do battle with Napoli for his signature in the summer, but the Dutchman isn’t the only player in the crosshairs in Turin. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are looking to select a new defensive midfielder to free up Manuel Locatelli in their system, and believe Real Sociedad’s Zubimendi would be an important addition to the team. The 25-year-old Spaniard has a €60 million release clause, a high fee for the Bianconeri, but his salary is affordable, making a deal possible. AC Milan are also interested in Zubimendi, as are other clubs abroad. He has scored four goals and provided one assist in 26 La Liga games this term, and is under contract with the Basque club until June 2027.
