Fulham Challenge Juventus in the Race to Sign Castagne

Juventus haven’t dropped out of the fray to acquire Timothy Castagne, but they face a new determined competitor, Fulham. The player would like to return to Italy, but the Bianconeri will likely wait to complete some sales and for his price tag to drop before lodging a new offer, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The wingback is regularly featuring in the friendlies this summer, as his departure is not yet looming. The Old Lady being kicked out from the European Conference League isn’t a problem to him.

Juventus remain in pole position for Castagne, but his price tag is €15M. They could delay their pursuit until they procure more money or Leicester City agree to an initial loan. They are in advanced talks to offload Denis Zakaria. Instead, Weston McKennie and others are struggling to fetch good offers.

The Bianconeri bid farewell to Juan Cuadrado and won’t have Mattia De Sciglio till January due to an ACL tear. They have already signed Timothy Weah at the position.

Our Take on Juventus and Castagne

The Old Lady will recalibrate their transfer market following the UEFA ban, as they don’t need to be super deep. While they could use another option, there’s a chance Andrea Cambiaso will serve as a deputy on both flanks, especially if Samuel Iling-Junior stays. It seems that most of their players, including the youngsters, are expendable but only for proper bids.
