Juventus Aim for Boca Talent Barco to Boost Defensive Line

Juventus are on the hunt for a left wingback and have taken note of budding Argentine talent from Boca Juniors. Valentin Barco, a product of the Azul y Oro youth academy, is closely monitored by the Bianconeri management.

As per TuttoJuve (via Tuttomercatoweb), Juventus like the idea of reinforcing their wing with a young talent such as Barco, who is just 18. The left-back has experienced very little first-team football, but the Bianconeri do not seem bothered about that fact as they keenly prepare for life after Sandro.

Barco has a contract valid until December 2024, and having extended his stay as recently as last February, it remains doubtful whether the Argentine giants will let go of one of their best talents. Juventus will need to spend at least €10M to bring the highly-rated youngster to Turin.

The Argentina U20 wingback was included in The Guardian’s ‘NEXT Gen’ list in 2021, having witnessed a steady rise in game time since his breakthrough that year.
