Juventus Not Done Making Moves on Their Right Wing

Juventus brought in Timothy Weah for the usual physical tests ahead of the completion of the deal Thursday, but he’s unlikely to be their only newcomer on the right wing. They have gained the inside track on Timothy Castagne but haven’t come to terms with Leicester City, which set a €15M price tag. They want to lower the disbursement or sign him on a loan with obligation to buy, Sky reports.

Nahitan Nandez is another option for the role. His agent Pablo Bentancur openly stated that he wanted to transfer. He was already close in the past. Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly a fan because of his versatility.

Juventus had a summit with agent Rafaela Pimenta and were proposed a high-end option for the right wing, Noussair Mazraoui. However, he’s more expensive, and the Bianconeri prefer somebody with Serie A experience.

The parties also discussed Paul Pogba. While there have been some inquiries from Saudi Arabia, there are no hints about his departure. He’ll be back in Turin to work on his conditioning Monday before the official start of their pre-season retreat.

Our Take on Juventus Moves on the Right Wing

Another player is needed, but not necessarily on this flank, as Andrea Cambiaso is ambidextrous, and the idea of adapting Samuel Iling-Junior was floated in the past. Weah isn’t a prospect, and spending a lot for a veteran would be ill-advised. Somebody with potential, like Emil Holm or Wilfried Singo, would be a better investment. Nandez would be useful and cheap, though.
