Juventus Keen on Atalanta and Torino Wing-Back Options

Juventus intend to find a new right wing-back in January to join Juan Cuadrado and eventually take over the starting job in the future. They have added new names to their shortlist, but their search still appears to be in its early stages.

According to Sky, the Bianconeri are eyeing Torino’s Wilfried Singo, Atalanta’s Joakim Maehle, and Spezia’s Emil Holm in Serie A. They have set their sights in Spain too, as they are keeping tabs on Valencia’s Thierry Correia and Real Valladolid’s 18-year-old prodigy Ivan Fresneda.

The Juventus brass will consult coach Massimiliano Allegri to identify the wing-back, La Gazzetta dello Sport. The gaffer has some reservations on Alvaro Odriozola. They could take Rick Karsdorp off of Roma’s hands, but only on loan, at most an option to redeem him. The recent events raised questions about his attitude, though.

The Giallorossi prefer an outright sale to have money to invest on a replacement. The camp of the Dutchman wouldn’t mind a mutual partying of the ways, so they could negotiate with a new club on their own. But the management has declined such option, at least for now.

Our Take on Juventus Searching for a Right Wing-Back

The Bianconeri will most likely have to sign two men in the role in the next windows. The ideal way to go would be somebody in his mid-20s that can contribute right away and then a talented prospect. Money seems to be scarce for them in January, and purchasing a youngster would require a decent investment. They’ll likely have to postpone such proposition to the summer. Maehle is okay but inconsistent, and Karsdorp is nothing special. Odriozola arguably remains the best option.
