Juventus Shortlist USMNT Star to Bolster Right Wing

Juventus will seek some reinforcements on the flanks in the summer, and Timothy Weah has caught their attention in recent weeks. He has turned into a wing-back under Paulo Fonseca. Therefore, he would be a good fit for their 3-5-2 scheme, Goal’s Romeo Agresti informs (via SOSFanta).

The Bianconeri signaled that they plotted to let go of Juan Cuadrado at the end of his expiring contract. They had previously indicated the same thing with Alex Sandro but eventually changed their mind. However, they’d have to negotiate a new deal in the Colombian’s case.

According to Calciomercato, there have been some initial contacts between Juventus and the entourage of Weah. His price tag will be capped because his contract runs out in 2024. On the other hand, the competition is robust, especially in Ligue 1. The Bianconeri have joined the fray waiting for updates on their off-the-pitch issues.

The 23-year-old, who enrolled in the PSG academy at a young age, transferred to Lille for €10M in 2019 after spending a year on loan at Celtic Glasgow. He has accumulated 8 goals and 8 assists in 87 appearances since then. He has scored 4 times in 29 caps with the United States.

Our Take on Juventus and Weah

While the Old Lady has been rumored to part ways with Cuadrado, they have been linked to only a couple of options in his role, such as Emil Holm and Ivan Fresneda, who are quite raw. The former has been out for a while with sports hernia too. They should sign two players, a prospect and a more established one. They need somebody as energetic and influential as Filip Kostic on the other flank. The American winger would fit the bill.
