Juventus Take an Interest in Yet Another Lille Player

Juventus might pull the plug early on Timothy Weah, as his maiden Serie A season has been disappointing, and have earmarked Tiago Santos as his replacement, La Gazzetta dello Sport relayed.

The USMNT staple received a rare start in the recent Cagliari game but flattered to deceive. He has appeared 29 times so far this season. However, he has gotten the nod just twice in 2024. He has scored once during his time in the Peninsula against Salernitana in the Coppa Italia.

Weah received some offers, albeit for loans, from the Premier League in January, and Juventus will re-examine them and target Santos if one meets their demands. The Portuguese is also wanted in England, though.

The 21-year-old directly substituted for the American wingback. He was signed for €6.5M from Estoril Praia last summer. He has notched 3 goals and 2 assists in 39 games.

The Bianconeri are expected to switch to a four-man defense next season. Andrea Cambiaso will likely star on the left. Danilo’s future at the club is more secure than reported. There’s an appearance-based clause that could prolong his deal until 2026, Fabrizio Romano informs (via SOSFanta).

Our Take on Juventus, Weah, and Tiago Santos

The former’s season has surely been underwhelming, but they might be more patient on the transfer market than in the past. If they go in a different tactical direction, it’ll be intriguing to see whether they’ll be content with Danilo as a right-back or move him to the middle and sign a more attacking player.
