Juventus plot to onboard a pair of newcomers to rebuild their right wing and, after examining Lucas Vazquez, they have shortlisted also his Real Madrid teammate Alvaro Odriozola. The Bianconeri chased after him last summer as well, but he ultimately stayed put.
Per Sky, the Spaniard could depart after playing little in 2022/2023. He has logged just 6 appearances for a total of 92 minutes. His contract with Los Merengues expires in 2024, so his price tag is low. He spent a season on loan at Fiorentina in the past.
Besides Odriozola, Juventus are keen on Spezia’s Emil Holm. Atalanta are after the Swedish starlet too. The relegation won’t help the Aquilotti cash in as much as possible from the sale of the Swede. Moreover, they must give part of the sum to his former team Sonderjyske. La Dea is ahead in the race.
The Bianconeri have decided to move on from Juan Cuadrado, whose expiring contract won’t be re-upped. Mattia De Sciglio will miss a few months with an ACL tear. Ivan Fresneda was on their radar in the past. However, he costs at least €20M and prefers staying in La Liga, Sport informs (via OneFootball).
Our Take on Juventus and Odriozola
One veteran and one starlet should be the way to go. They have to penny-pinch, so most will come down to price tags and formulas. They might even go extra cheap, promoting Tommaso Barbieri and signing just one experienced player. Given his minuscule role, the ex-Viola defender figures to be a more believable and affordable target than Vazquez.
