Juventus have taken an interest in Georgyi Sudakov and are concocting a plan for January, but the talent is in high demand, as Arsenal, Barcelona, and a few other sides are tracking him as well. The competition fuels Shakhtar Donetsk’s requests, complicating the Bianconeri’s plans, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.
The Ukrainian side already wants €30M for the talent. His valuation will easily continue to increase considering his performances. The Old Lady can’t spend that much during the winter. Their management was thinking about a favorable formula to dilute the investment.
However, given the inquiries of Arsenal and Barcelona, Shakhtar Donetsk wouldn’t find it hard to find a buyer that met their demands for Sudakov in a more streamlined way than Juventus. The Gunners have stayed in touch with the counterparty after failing to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk. They are after also Club Brugge’s Arthur Vermeeren, who has similar traits.
Instead, the Blaugrana were impressed by the prodigy in the recent meeting with the Ukrainian outfit. He scored against them in the Champions League. They just lost Gavi to a serious knee injury and will likely fill the hole through the transfer market.
Brighton are keen too and, while they aren’t as deep-pocketed, Roberto De Zerbi already coached the 21-year-old.
Our Take on Sudakov, Juventus, Barcelona, and Arsenal
He’d be just what the doctor ordered for the Bianconeri, but they’ll probably need one very profitable sale to be competitive in the race.
