Juventus Nearing Complete Agreement to Onboard Weah

Juventus are close to landing Timothy Weah, who will likely become the first piece of their revamped right wing. The Bianconeri have come to an understanding with Lille on the overall figures of the deal. The two teams will work on the final details in the next few days, Gianluca Di Marzio relays.

The USMNT star will come in with a €12M price tag. Whether the Old Lady will pay such fee or €10M plus add-ons has yet to be determined. The versatile midfielder will ink a five-year contract. He was one of the first options on their radar when the future of Juan Cuadrado started to get very murky.

Weah will be able to cover multiple positions on the flank at Juventus, hinging on the scheme, fittingly replacing the outbound Colombian in that sense. The 23-year-old got his start in America before joining the PSG’s youth academy and moving to Les Dogues in a €10M move in 2019 after a loan spell at Celtic Glasgow. He appeared in 107 in the past three campaigns, tallying 8 goals and 8 assists. He has 29 caps with his national team.

Such acquisition won’t prevent the Bianconeri from signing another specialist. Timothy Castagne is top of the list. They are trying to convince Leicester City to let him transfer on an initial loan.

Our Take on Juventus and Weah

They ran the gamut but went back to one of their strong early ideas for the role since it adequately combines the technical element with the economic one. He’s established enough that they don’t necessarily need to pair him up with a veteran.
