The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has had very little joy at Juve since scoring against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last October.
It was his only goal so far this season and his dry spell is a symbol of a difficult year.
A favourite of Massimiliano Allegri, Bernardeschi has failed to reach the same heights under Maurizio Sarri.
A natural winger, Bernardeschi has been used as a mezzala (half-winger) this season, a position he is less comfortable with.
Only half of his 18 appearances in Serie A have been starts, and his Champions League starts have been limited to two games.
More games or off to England?
Bernardeschi, a €40m signing for Juventus from Fiorentina in 2017, wants to play more games.
The delayed Euros are next year and he hopes to be a part of Roberto Mancini’s Italy plans.
His national team ambitions mean he wants guarantees that Sarri can’t offer him right now.
The arrival of Dejan Kulusevski in the summer, returning from a loan spell at Parma, will add even more competition in Bernardeschi’s area of the pitch.
As a result, Bernardeschi is thinking of a move – and has the Premier League in his thoughts.
At 26 and a travel lover, he believes an experience abroad would be good at this point of his career.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all have an interest in the gifted attacking midfielder. Juventus could have interesting negotiations with the latter two, since Paul Pogba and Jorginho have been linked with a move to Turin.
Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri is another player often associated with Juventus who could enter talks.
Still time to reflect
Neither Bernardeschi or Juventus will rush into a decision, with both sides having time to reflect.
The Serie A champions made an important investment when they spent €40m on the Italy international and still value him.
Bernardeschi joined Juve with the intention of staying long-term, but the change of coach has slowed his development.
In the months ahead, he will learn if he has a future under Sarri or if he should go to the Premier League.
