Juventus Chasing Gudmundsson as Roma Want Top Star

Juventus are tracking Albert Gudmundsson especially due to the uncertainty about the future of Federico Chiesa, whom Roma are reportedly eyeing. His contract is up in 2025. The parties postponed the negotiation to the end of the season. They could settle for a one-year renewal but haven’t finalized it, TuttoSport relays (via Calciomercato).

The attacker might ask out if the Bianconeri confirm Massimiliano Allegri. The two have a rocky relationship. The player was pictured complaining after his most recent substitution. Rather than on a personal level, the problem is tactical.

Juventus have opened talks with the Gudmundsson camp as a short-term extension wouldn’t ensure Chiesa stays put amid the interest from Roma and foreign teams. The two players have similar valuations, but the Genoa star has a much lower salary.

The Bianconeri have proposed a four-year contract with €2.4M wages and add-ons, doubling what he makes in Liguria. Instead, their own attacker earns €5M annually and asks for a raise. Daniele De Rossi got to know him while assisting Roberto Mancini on the Italy bench. He’d like his side to try signing him.

Our Take on Juventus, Gudmundsson, Chiesa, and Roma

It would actually be a decent landing spot for the Old Lady ace, but the Giallorossi don’t have the financial strength to splurge on any single acquisition if they want to build a nice squad. The Turin-based club is unlikely to risk a Bsoman departure in 2025. They’d have to concoct a swap, which is very rare for players of this caliber.
