Italian Serie A club Juventus' midfielder Nicolo Fagioli is in deep trouble as the 22-year-old is under serious investigation for possible involvement in illegal betting activities.

La Stampa daily reported that Fagioli and other unnamed suspects were involved in a criminal probe targeting users of illegal online betting platforms.

However, the daily newspaper hasn't clarified the nature of Fagioli's involvement. In another report, its source claimed that the Italian soccer federation is also looking into the matter.

Without detailing the content, Turin Chief Prosecutor Enrica Gabetta reportedly stated through an email, "I confirm the news of the investigation."

Although Italian soccer authorities have banned players from betting on soccer matches, there is no issue with other gambling activities.

If a player is found to have bet on soccer matches, the player can be suspended for a maximum of 3 years and fined more than $26,500 under the FIGC's code of conduct.

Fagioli joined the Juventus youth system in 2015. The 2022/23 Serie A Best Young Player has appeared in six out of eight Serie A matches this season.

In November 2022, Fagioli earned his first senior national team call-up. That same month, the Italian made his senior international debut in a friendly match against Albania.
