Juventus Mull Tweak, Earmark In-Demand Udinese Starlet

Lazar Samardzic is on the radar of all the top Serie A clubs, including Juventus. The Saudi threat hasn’t disappeared for Paul Pogba. The Bianconeri are making preparations should the Frenchman give in to the courtship, TuttoSport informs.

Massimiliano Allegri is plotting a slight tactical tweak, switching from 3-5-2 to 3-4-1-2 when the ex-Manchester United midfielder is available. He’d play in the hole. Therefore, they’d target a technical player if he departed, as Fabio Miretti is the only other alternative.

Samardzic is represented by Rafaela Pimenta, who has strong ties with Juventus. Inter and Napoli are also keeping tabs. Udinese would be happy to keep him for another campaign, but a proper bid could change their mind.

The Bianconeri have scheduled new talks for Franck Kessié, but nothing is imminent. Barcelona would have to agree to an initial loan. Plus, the player has to okay the transfer, which isn’t a given since he signaled to be keener on staying or transferring to the Premier League if he was forced out.

The tidbit about their scheme is more interesting than the report about their interest in the Udinese prodigy, whom his agent is clearly shopping him around. It would help Pogba, but it’d be a pity to limit Adrien Rabiot’s freedom of movement after the season he had.
