Juventus Keeping Tabs on Second Shakhtar Donetsk Player

Juventus probably won’t be able to purchase their long-time target Georgyi Sudakov, who recently extended his contract and has a €100M release clause, but they are intrigued by another Shakhtar Donetsk forward, Danylo Sikan, TuttoSport informs.

Their scouts will watch them both in the upcoming clash between Bosnia and Ukraine. The new target will turn 23 in April and can star as a first or second striker. He has a much lower valuation than his star teammate.

Juventus shortlisted Sikan as they’ll have a few moving parts up front. While Dusan Vlahovic is expected to stay, with or without a renewal, along with Arkadiusz Milik. Instead, either Federico Chiesa or Moise Kean agree to new contracts, or they’ll be put up for sale in the summer. There’s growing optimism the former will ink at least a short-term one.

The Ukrainian striker has totaled 8 goals and 4 assists in 29 appearances this campaign. He joined Shakhtar at a young age and spent a year on loan at Mariupol in the recent past. He has seven caps and has scored once with his national team.

Our Take on Juventus and Sikan

They might need a new man if Kean departs, although they could just keep Kaio Jorge or promote another youngster, but the role won’t be a priority if Vlahovic stays put. They might not spend big even if Chiesa leaves, leaning on their in-house resources.
