Barcelona, Inter and Juventus are battling it out for Fiorentina attacker Federico Bernardeschi, reports Calciomercato.
The two Serie A clubs have been courting the Italian for some time, but interest from Barca threatens their respective bids.
Juventus, however, believe the player’s desire to move to Turin will be enough to help them secure his services, alongside Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa.
Bayern Munich and Inter Milan have also expressed an interest but, according to broadcaster Sportitalia, it is Juve who have pushed ahead with a £40m bid.
The Italian champions are hoping that formal offer can win them the race for Bernardeschi, but it was originally reported that Fiorentina wanted closer to £45m.
