Juventus Actively Looking for Their Next Starting Left-Back

Juventus are seeking a new left-back as they wish to move on from Alex Sandro. The veteran is under contract until 2023, and they prefer cashing in on him, at least moderately, rather than facing the risk of losing him for nothing, TuttoSport informs.

The Brazilian international has drawn limited interest thus far, also because his wages are significant. Still, the Bianconeri hope a European powerhouse will come forward and bid for him. They are compiling a list of alternatives in case that happens.

If the current starter left, Juventus would go after a younger left-back. Renan Lodi would be an ideal addition, although it will take a sizeable offer to convince Atletico Madrid to let him go. They will hold talks with the Colchoneros to sort out the future of Alvaro Morata, and they will touch base for the defender, but it is a long shot.

Juventus are also eyeing Chelsea to find their next left-back. They have expressed interest in Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri in the past. The Spaniard has just one more year left on his deal. The Italian international is on loan to Olympique Lyonnais, which will have an undisclosed option to buy him out at the end of the season.

The Old Lady have inquired about Owen Wijndal with Mino Raiola. The youngster is not tied to AZ Alkmaar long-term. However, he has several suitors across Europe, and his agent is shopping him around, Tuttomercatoweb informs. He has logged 8 assists in 25 Eredivisie appearances this season.
