Juventus Undecided About Which Midfielder to Sign

Juventus have tested the waters for a few midfielders and haven’t zeroed in on one just yet. If it were up to them, they’d acquire Teun Koopmeiners, but Atalanta don’t want to sell their star, especially midway through the season, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

The Bianconeri have made strides in their chase of Kalvin Phillips. He’s the easiest to capture. However, coach Massimiliano Allegri has yet to sign off on him because he’d prefer a different kind of player.

Juventus have also shown some interest in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Tottenham could be open to letting him go on a loan with an obligation to make the transfer permanent. The Dane is also being pursued by other Premier League and Italian sides, for instance Napoli, which are in advanced talks to sell Elijf Elmas to RB Leipzig.

In the meantime, the Old Lady is also contemplating a defensive signing. They are after Tiago Djaló and are trying to purchase him in January to then loan him out to allow him to fully recover from an ACL tear. While it wouldn’t be hard to come to terms with Lille, Inter moved early, and the defender is prioritizing them.

Our Take on the Juventus Midfield

Considering in how much trouble they were sans Adrien Rabiot last week, they shouldn’t stop at one addition. A short-term deal like the one for Phillips probably wouldn’t preclude them from onboarding also a more creative player, which is what they truly need.
