Juventus and Roma Going After Same Pair of Wingbacks

Juventus and Roma both need to shore up their right flank and have set sights on the same targets, Emil Holm and Benjamin Henrichs, but it’ll be tough to land them in the next two days. The Giallorossi might have gained the inside track for the Spezia starlet, TuttoSport relays.

The capital agreed to send Eldor Shomurodov to Liguria. Despite their previous stance, he’ll join in a straight €1.5M loan. Given the favorable conditions, the capital side might have obtained an option to sign the Swedish prodigy in the summer. His valuation is around €12M.

On top of dueling for Holm, Roma and Juventus have also reportedly inquired with RB Leipzig about Henrichs. On the other hand, his price tag is robust, and his team would rather keep hold of him in the January window.

The Bianconeri have come to terms with Leeds for Weston McKennie, who’ll transfer on loan with option to buy in a €35M package, Goal reports. Coach Massimiliano Allegri suggested they wouldn’t replace him, leaning on Mattia De Sciglio and Matias Soulé to fill in.

Our Take on Juventus, Roma, Holm, and Henrichs

Spezia snatched Shomurodov for cheap, and while these things are rarely official, it’d be a great get if they earned the upper hand for the 22-year-old. José Mourinho was more lenient toward Rick Karsdorp in his most recent remarks. Perhaps they’ll reintegrate him to restore their short-term depth. Instead, the Bianconeri should definitely add somebody right away. Cuadrado hasn’t been durable lately, and McKennie was their second-best option in the role. They should recall Andrea Cambiaso at the bare minimum.
