Juventus Shortlist Duo to Replenish Depleted Right Wing

Juventus will have to rebuild their right flank in the summer. Juan Cuadrado isn’t expected to stay past the expiration of his contract. Mattia De Sciglio suffered an ACL tear that will sideline him for the first part of next season too.

According to Calciomercato, the Bianconeri are keeping tabs on two names in particular. They have never ceased eyeing Ivan Fresneda. However, he’s expensive, and there’s a lot of competition to acquire him from Real Valladolid.

In addition, Juventus have set sights on Noussair Mazraoui. He hasn’t played as much as he hoped at Bayern Munich. He only recently logged his first two starts under Thomas Tuchel. The coach wouldn’t impede his departure.

The Moroccan international is represented by Rafaela Pimenta, the same agent as Paul Pogba and Matthijs De Ligt. She has often arranged transfers for the Bianconeri.

Our Take on the Juventus’ Right-Flank

It should have been the case anyway but, with the De Sciglio news, they should definitely bring in two players, preferably a prodigy and a more established contributor. Plus, it can’t be ruled out that they will make the numbers work to retain Cuadrado just to have fewer things to check off in the summer. He’s still okay when he doesn’t have to play too much.

Fresneda will probably prove too expensive for Serie A teams, but there are other viable youngsters with potential and more affordable price tags out there. For instance, Spezia’s Emil Holm, even though sports hernia ruined his campaign. Since top outfits tend to do business together, especially with a hands-on agent in the middle, Mazraoui would be a believable option if he asked out.
