Juventus Ready to Pounce Only at the Right Opportunity

Juventus would seize the chance to grab a quality midfielder, if possible, during the January window, and their main options at the moment are Lazar Samardzic and Ederson. The former is an easier target, even though Napoli have been negotiating with Udinese and his camp for a while, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

He’d be top of the list in the summer if he stayed in Friuli. The two Bianconeri sides could concoct an initial loan with a €25M obligation to buy if the reigning Scudetto holders don’t seal the deal soon.

While Juventus would find fertile ground for Samardzic, convincing Atalanta to sell Ederson would be challenging. Coach Massimiliano Allegri is enamored with him. However, La Dea considers him and Teun Koopmeiners untouchable.

According to DAZN’s Orazio Accomando, the Old Lady wouldn’t have as much trouble agreeing with the father of Serb talent as the Partenopei. Udinese director Federico Balzaretti commented to Sky.

“The situation is very easy. There’s no denying that he has some suitors. The presidents talked. The conclusion of the negotiation with Napoli isn’t imminent. Juventus? They didn’t move officially, but we know he’s appreciated by several Italian clubs. They asked for him also from the Premier League.”

Our Take on Juventus, Samardzic, and Ederson

The Friulani prodigy would restore the oomph they lost with the suspensions, although he’d need some work. Atalanta could be open for business on the formula, but the offer would have to be massive for them to budge.
