Juventus Eye Pair of High-Profile Veteran Midfielders

Juventus are looking for some experience ahead of their Champions League return and set sights on two stars who will potentially be out of contract in June, Toni Kroos and Jorginho. The German ace has yet to decide his future, SportMediaset informs.

The Real Madrid linchpin is weighing his options, including an early retirement since he’s 34. If he elects to keep playing and wants a change of scenery after nine years in Spain and four with Bayern Munich, the Bianconeri will make their proposal.

While the contract of Kroos runs out at the end of the season, Arsenal can pick up an option to re-up with Jorginho without negotiating with the player, which might quell Juventus’ interest. He and director Cristiano Giuntoli spent four seasons together at Napoli from 2015 to 2018. The Italian regista then moved to Chelsea for €57M and eventually to Arsenal last summer.

Even though they are earmarking midfielders, the Bianconeri’s main priority is still to come to terms with Adrien Rabiot, whose deal is also up on June 30th.

Our Take on Juventus, Kroos, and Jorginho

The former is a more believable option even though they’d have to go through Arsenal, which most likely won’t let him go gratis. He might be gettable as his role has fluctuated, and he has a previous connection with their front office. If they can’t keep Rabiot, they should move Manuel Locatelli to box-to-box and sign somebody who would really pull the strings.
