Five Premier League Outcasts Juventus Should Sign in January

After a mishap summer, a delayed start to the new season, and a restructured transfer window, we’re already heading for the next year and the next transfer window. Most of us will be happy to see 2020 on its way but what’s more important to many football fans around the globe is the mid-season transfer window.Teams will no doubt need to bolster, fill in the gaps and make some much needed adjustments in January, and here we take a look at five Premier League outcasts who Juventus should look to sign this January:

Mesut Ozil

The German hasn’t featured since June for his club and with Mikel Arteta leaving him out of both Arsenal’s European and Premier League squads, his imminent departure looks to be drawing ever closer.

But there’s still life in the 32-year-old. He was a globally recognized talent at one point and perhaps he just needs a fresh start to become that once again. The Italian champions could always bring him to Turin for the second-half of this season; there’s little in it to lose for either side, and for Ozil, it’d be a chance to almost redeem himself at Juventus after years of controversy on the Premier League.

Marcos Alonso

Chelsea made all the headlines last summer. They spent upwards of £250 million on their squad and one of those to arrive was Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.

He’s made an immediate impact at his new club and it’s kept Alonso out of the squad in Chelsea’s last four outings. The Spaniard is another high-quality player and he nor Frank Lampard will want to see him wasted on the sidelines.

Defensive options are always a plus and Andrea Pirlo could well use more cover in the left-back role, so a move for Alonso could yet make sense.

Divock Origi

The Liverpool man has scored some hugely important goals for the club since his 2015 arrival, but even after five years at Anfield he remains a back-up player.

His talent has become clearer over the past couple of seasons and at 25-years-old he might feel he needs to challenge more, play more football and score the goals he knows he can.

Origi has featured just once in the Premier League so far this season and even though a move to Juve – either on-loan or permanently – would see him become a back-up striker here, he could have more of a chance of football.

A big stage player, and one that could surprise a few if this unlikely move did materialize.

Dele Alli

Another name who’s performed well on the highest of stages, but in times of late, has seemingly lost interest in his football.

Alli burst onto the Scene with Spurs during the 2016-17 season and it’s widely regarded that he’s gone downhill from there. But at 24-years-old he’s still a young player and one with still huge amounts of potential.

He was linked with a move to PSG of summer and a European destination might suit a player of Alli’s technicality, and doggedness in midfield. This could be a stern move by Juventus if they could tempt Alli from the Premier League in January, depending on how he features for his side up until then.

Ilkay Gundogan

One of Pep Guardiola’s favourite players in past seasons, but this season has started slowly for the German international. Gundogan has made just one Premier League appearance so far for City, owing to Phil Foden’s breakthrough.

Central midfield is another area that Pirlo could look to bolster over January with many games on his fixture list, and the added pressure of being the reigning Italian champions.

Gundogan is a classy player and another midfielder who might be better suited to the European leagues, if not the Serie A. Fans would love to see Gundogan in a Juve jersey, but it might cost a pretty penny.
