Juventus Staying in Touch with Pair of Midfield Aces

Despite Cristiano Giuntoli’s coyness about it, Juventus continue to work to identify the right midfield reinforcement in January. They want an inventive player, preferably with previous Serie A experience. Among their rumored targets, Rodrigo De Paul and Fabian Ruiz fit the mold the best, TuttoSport informs (via Tribuna)

On the other hand, they are both expensive and not eager to leave their respective sides. Therefore, the Old Lady is paying attention to the potential opportunities that could pop up.

Eduard Spertsyan and Lazar Samardzic are the younger alternatives on the Juventus radar for the midfield, while Georgyi Sudakov is as challenging to sign as the veteran duo. The Udinese starlet might be easiest to lure, as the Friulani could agree to an initial loan. On the other hand, he might want to stay put to have a better shot at a big role with Serbia in Euro 2024. He’d have to fight for minutes in Turin.

The 23-year-old Armenian talent is the cheapest of the bunch but is more offensive-minded. He has tallied 7 goals and 3 assists in 19 matches with Krasnodar this season.

Our Take on the Juventus Midfield

De Paul and Samardzic would be terrific choices, but purchasing them is easier said than done. Whoever they onboard will be telling about how much pull Massimiliano Allegri has considering the recent rumors. They’ll add a proven player if he has his way, while Giuntoli would likely prefer a youngster.
