Juventus Linked Again to City Group Talent Yan Couto

Juventus will likely add a right-back this summer and plot to go after Yan Couto, who has played on loan at Girona from Manchester City for the past two seasons. The young Brazilian fell on their radar before the opportunity of luring Giovanni Di Lorenzo from Napoli emerged, TuttoSport informed.

On the other hand, the Italian veteran has been tipped to change his mind and stay put. Therefore, the Bianconeri might soon have to shift their attention toward other players. They don’t have a specialist after using 3-5-2 for a few years.

Yan Couto is currently backing up Danilo for the Seleçao, and Juventus will attempt to form the duo in Turin as well. Manchester City slapped a €25M price tag on the 22-year-old. At this stage, the Old Lady intends to pursue a loan move. He has a Portuguese passport.

The youngster logged 2 goals and 12 assists during his time in La Liga. He previously starred for Braga. The City Football Group signed him for €6M from Coritiba in 2020.

Our Take on Juventus and Yan Couto

They’ll have to find somebody, but they have been a lot more active on other fronts for now, so they might not necessarily look for a starter or a top player. Since they have been busier tracking center-backs, the plan appears to be to have Danilo start there, which is suspect at this stage of his career. They also have the option of adapting Timothy Weah or leaning on a pair of promising youngsters as the deputy, so they probably won’t splurge.
