Federico Bernardeschi's potential return to Juventus is in the cards, with the 29-year-old possibly returning to Turin in the final days of the January transfer window.
Having played for Juventus from 2017 to 2022, Bernardeschi joined Toronto FC as a free agent afterward. Despite leaving, he maintained a connection with the club, visiting Continassa last November and supporting his former teammates against Inter at the Allianz Stadium.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via TuttoJuve, Bernardeschi could become an option for Juventus if Filip Kostic departs from the club in the next ten days. The Serbian has garnered interest from the Saudi Pro League.
While Kostic remains Max Allegri's preferred choice on the left flank, his performances have faced scrutiny this season. Juventus is open to a lucrative offer from the Middle East, and if Kostic moves to Saudi Arabia, Bernardeschi is considered a direct replacement.
The Euro 2020 winner is versatile, capable of playing on the left flank and other positions, including right winger and attacking midfielder. The Italian is available for a six-month loan, with Toronto FC approving the move.
Bernardeschi, who rose through the ranks at Fiorentina, has not fully realized the potential demonstrated during his early years in Florence.
