Southampton have made it clear to suitors that they are willing to let Carlos Alcaraz go out on loan again this summer, so long as they pay €3m and include a purchase clause.

That’s according to Juve Live, who cover the player today and how he could end up at Fiorentina at some point in the coming weeks.

They explain that Alcaraz has been allowed to leave Juventus after his time on loan there last season, having failed to convince the Italian giants to sign him permanently.

The club were happy with him, but he has ‘not entirely convinced’ those in charge of the Old Lady and so they’ve allowed him to return to Southampton, where his future is just as unclear.

A return to Serie A has not been ruled out at this point and Fiorentina are showing a strong interest in him.

They need to rebuild their midfield after letting Alfred Duncan, Giacomo Bonaventura and Gaetano Castrovilli depart and the Southampton man is one of the names they are looking at.

At this moment signing him is just an idea and has not been explored fully but it could turn into something concrete at any point, particularly as Southampton have made it clear they’re open to sanctioning another loan deal.

They would want any club to pay an initial €3m loan fee and include a right to buy ‘at very high prices’ in the deal as well. This type of proposal ‘entices’ Fiorentina, though, and so they could move.
