Juventus Eye Villarreal Star amid Szczesny Uncertainty

Juventus will probably still have Wojciech Szczesny defending their posts next year, but they’ll have to address the position sooner rather than later and have earmarked Villarreal’s Filip Jorgensen, Relevo informs (via TuttoSport). The contracts of all their goalies run out in 2025.

Several teams are tracking the 21-year-old, who has blossomed this campaign. He permanently unseated veteran Pepe Reina after backing him up beforehand. He has been in Spain since he was ten. El Submarillo Amarillo signed him from Mallorca a few years ago. The shot-stopper debuted in the pros in 2021.

If Juventus decided to pursue Jorgensen next summer, they would have to tussle with Newcastle United, Wolverhampton, Bayer Leverkusen, and Borussia Dortmund. He’s under contract until 2027, so Villarreal can negotiate from a strong position. He has allowed 64 goals and kept 5 clean sheets in 37 matches with them.

The goalie, who was born in Lomma, has decided to represent Denmark and has 11 caps with their U-21 side.

Our Take on Juventus and Jorgensen

They have so many roles to address that they’ll likely stand pat between the sticks, also because Szczesny is still going strong. It’d be better if he agreed to a lower salary, but they’d need a stroke of luck to turn a profit on him at this point. Still, if he doesn’t extend his contract, setting up his exit in 2025, they should seriously consider bringing in a talent who could take over eventually, perhaps even less established than the Villarreal specialist.
