Juventus Have Clear Plans to Touch Up Their Defense

Despite the hurdles and their respective teams’ stances, Juventus will continue pursuing Riccardo Calafiori and Giovanni Di Lorenzo to retool their rearguard. Antonio Conte would gladly keep his captain. Instead, Bologna CEO Claudio Fenucci stated that he told the player’s agent that he wouldn’t depart.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri haven’t pivoted toward other targets for now. Jakub Kiwior is a viable fallback for the middle of the defense. They haven’t started tracking other right-backs yet.

In addition to chasing Calafiori and Di Lorenzo, Cristiano Giuntoli and Thiago Motta are evaluating the pieces already in the squad. Alex Sandro will leave, while the others could all stay put, but Mattia De Sciglio. The coach wishes to lean on Gleison Bremer even though he has some suitors. His price tag is relatively affordable for wealthy teams. Tiago Djaló seemed destined to leave, but the new manager is intrigued by his traits and could use him on the flank. That could be the case also for Federico Gatti.

The negotiation with Al-Nassr concerning Wojciech Szczesny has slowed down a little but hasn’t collapsed, Alfredo Pedullà reports. The two clubs are discussing the fee. The Old Lady could settle for less.

Our Take on Juventus, Di Lorenzo, and Calafiori

They’d be quality reinforcements, especially the latter, but they shouldn’t get stuck in those pursuits all summer if there aren’t openings. All in all, they are in decent shape in the back. Plus, it wouldn’t be surprising if Motta revitalized underutilized or uninspiring contributors and promoted some youngsters.
