Juventus Examine Cheaper Options to Shore Up the Squad

Juventus don’t have the resources to interfere with Napoli’s chase of Lazar Samardzic, and, with Massimiliano Allegri not enthused by other targets and the challenges to onboard them, they have started considering more affordable options, especially from Serie A, Calciomercato informs.

Cristiano Giuntoli tracked the Serb in the past, and he would addres their need for more inventiveness. But the Partenopei offer €20/25M on the nail to Udinese to get him. Instead, they could only propose a less straightforward formula.

Juventus have taken an interest in a pair of players that would provide an extra option while not being too expensive or upsetting the current hierarchies, Genoa’s Morten Frendrup and Udinese’s Sandi Lovric. Liverpool are eyeing the former too. They both have long-term contracts with their current sides.

The Dane has registered four assists this season. Instead, the Friulani midfielder has been outshined by Martin Payero, providing just one helper. He had scored five times and set up six teammates in his maiden Serie A campaign last year.

Our Take on the Juventus Midfield

It’s probably not just a matter of money for Samardzic, as Udinese were open to helping out the suitors last summer. Perhaps they prefer somebody more consistent even if less brilliant on his day. Genoa are unlikely to sell more starters if they lose Radu Dragusin, and the Zebrette need Lovric if the Serb goes to Napoli. They could find a diamond in the rough with this strategy, but more likely abroad than in Italy.
