Juventus Grand Plans to Bolster Midfield Unchanged

Juventus need a little more time to complete the swap with Aston Villa involving Douglas Luiz, and they’ll focus on Teun Koopmeiners next. The Bianconeri have been chasing after the Dutchman since January and wish to seal the deal relatively quickly, Alfredo Pedullà reports.

It could have the same structure and include a player. Dean Huijsen is more likely to join Atalanta than Matias Soulé. La Dea has a hole at the position. Plus, the Bianconeri believe a Premier League will get close to the winger’s €40M price tag. Instead, Girona have shown interest in the budding defender.

Despite their pursuits of other players, Juventus still wish to keep Adrien Rabiot. The management believes they have done their best by tendering a three-year contract with €7.5M wages. The ball is in the star’s court. He doesn’t seem too much in a hurry to make his decision.

If he left, the Bianconeri would target Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana, who has been insistently linked to Milan, and Nice’s Khephren Thuram. The contracts of the two Frenchmen expire in 2025. Le Gym recently tabled their proposal but haven’t gotten an answer on it yet.

The talks with Aston Villa are being held up by Weston McKennie. He hasn’t come to terms with his prospective new team yet, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

Our Take on the Juventus Midfield

It has been a sore spot for a few years, and the trifecta would go a long way toward addressing it. It’d be a well-assorted line. It would arguably look better with one of the two youngsters instead of Rabiot.
