The Juventus scouts have taken a close look at two players in particular during the recent continental fixtures, Florian Wirtz and Victor Boniface. The former is in very high demand, as he’s on the radar of all the top European teams, Tuttomercatoweb relays.
The attacking midfielder has tallied 6 goals and 9 assists in 16 appearances so far this season. Bayern Munich are touted to be in the lead to capture him, as is the case for most high-profile German players. He has a €85M valuation, according to Transfermarkt.
While Wirtz is likely too pricey for Juventus, Boniface might be a more attainable target, should they tweak their attack. They have also been linked to Alvaro Morata lately. The rumors about a potential Dusan Vlahovic sale are resurfacing.
The 22-year-old Nigerian international has scored 11 times and set up 6 teammates in 15 matches across all competitions. Bayer Leverkusen paid €20M to acquire him from Union Sait-Gilloise last summer. He had broken out with Bodo/Glimt before spending a year in Belgium.
Our Take on Juventus, Wirtz, and Boniface
It’s hard to find a team that doesn’t like the no.10. While they have been tipped to seek a player with those traits, he’s easily too expensive. Instead, if they did cash in on Vlahovic, they would target an up-and-comer with low wages, which is the main problem of the Serb, and the former would fit the bill.
