Juventus to Step Up Efforts to Sign Argentinian Starlet

Juventus plan to make a serious attempt to acquire Julian Alvarez in January. The competition will be fierce, and the saga will go on for a while. The Bianconeri have received rave reports about the youngster and could soon put pedal to the metal.

A scout of the Bianconeri will attend the upcoming River Plate matches against Platense, Racing, and Rosario Central. If the attacker continues to impress, Juventus will consider paying his €20M release clause, Alfredo Pedullà reports. Even though he could be overlapping with Paulo Dybala and Kaio Jorge due to his traits, the club is enamored with his talent.

In the meantime, Juventus are preparing a €15M offer plus €10M add-ons, Corriere dello Sport reports. River Plate are trying to agree to an extension with the starlet, as his contract expires in December. They remain optimistic it will happen. Otherwise, they will sell him to whoever activates the release clause. Differently from regular bids, it has to be paid on the nail, plus sizeable taxes, and not through installments.

According to the transfer market expert, Fiorentina displayed the most interest in Italy outside of Juventus. Director Nicolas Burdisso has vouched for the 21-year-old. Nicolas Gonzalez and Lucas Martinez Quarta have reached out to Alvarez to convince him to join the Viola, Olé relays. Milan simply observed the player, while Shakhtar Donetsk came out in the open. Real Madrid are also chasing after Alvarez, Marca informs. They seem willing to open up their wallet to get him too.
