Juventus Eye Summer Move for Sergio Aguero

Juventus have reportedly joined the race for outgoing Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero. According to Italian news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri are hopeful that the signing of a household name would help them keep Cristiano Ronaldo beyond the summer.

Aguero has just over three months left on his contract at the Etihad Stadium and has yet to pledge his future to City. One of Pep Guardiola’s most trusted allies has endured an injury-riddled season, netting just three goals during the entire 2020-21 campaign. 

The Argentine is 32 and may have one last chance to secure a lucrative contract before hanging up his boots. 

Despite his age, Aguero has generated a lot of interest from a host of Europe’s elite clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. 

Though there is a genuine feeling that he won’t accept a move to another Premier League club following ten stellar years at City, a move abroad is very much on the cards. 

After seeing another Champions League campaign collapse prematurely, the reigning Serie A champions are eager to persuade Ronaldo to stay put in Turin.

Andrea Pirlo’s men are also miles away from retaining the domestic title, as they currently sit ten points adrift of league-leaders Inter Milan.

An utterly underwhelming season has cast doubt on their increasingly unsatisfied star’s future, and Fabio Paratici is looking to pour cold water on the fire.

If Juventus’ pursuit of Aguero comes a cropper, Everton’s up-and-comer Moise Kean is said to be the go-to option to fill the void. 

The Italian has enjoyed a successful loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain. The perennial Ligue 1 champions are looking to reward the 21-year-old with a permanent deal, though the Toffees are also interested in taking him back to base.

Kean made his senior breakthrough at the Allianz Stadium in November 2016. In 2019, he left Juve to join Everton in a deal worth around €27.5million but faltered in his first season in the Premier League.

However, the youngster has got his career back on track in Paris and looks keen on extending his stay in the French capital.
