Juventus midfielder Nicolo Fagioli is currently under investigation for potential betting breaches, which could result in serious consequences for the Italian player.
Fagioli is one of the suspects in a wide-ranging investigation into illegal betting platforms, with access to data and transactions.
Engaging in betting activities is strictly prohibited for professional footballers due to the potential influence it could have on match outcomes.
According to reports from Italian outlet La Stampa, Fagioli, who is 22 years old, is being interrogated as part of the investigation conducted by the Turin investigator.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has been notified of the ongoing action.
If found guilty of breaching Article 24 of the Code of Sports Justice, Fagioli could face a fine exceeding €25,000 and a suspension of up to three years.
This potential scandal comes at a difficult time for Juventus, as they are already dealing with another controversy involving Paul Pogba, who tested positive for high testosterone levels.
Pogba’s counter-analysis also confirmed the positive result, further complicating matters for the club.
