PSG Take an Interest in Promising Juventus Defender

PSG have shortlisted Dean Huijsen to get younger in the back, and Juventus could be open for business at the right price. The prodigy spent the second half of last season on loan at Roma, featuring 14 times. He scored twice and assisted once. José Mourinho, who was a big proponent of the signing, was ousted about a week after his arrival.

Per L’Equipe, the 19-year-old is a secondary target for the Ligue 1 champions. Their top one is Lille’s Lenny Yoro, who’s more expensive and is being pursued by Real Madrid as well. They are also keen on Feyenoord’s Lutsharel Geertruida.

PSG are plotting to offer €20M for Huijsen, but it’s not sure it’ll be enough to persuade Juventus. The Bianconeri could indeed cash in on the talent, but they are looking for €30M, TuttoSport informed.

Borussia Dortmund has been after the Dutchman for a while. Atalanta could be interested in including him in Teun Koopmeiners’ deal. The Old Lady acquired him from Malaga in 2021. He has been a regular at the youth level and in the Next Gen squad but played just once with their first team. He has two caps with Spain U-21.

Our Take on PSG, Juventus, and Huijsen

He’s not as accomplished as Matias Soulé, so it’d be a bigger gamble, but the Bianconeri are in a similar spot with him. Without a proper offer, they could just decide to lean on him and see if he works out in Thiago Motta’s scheme. He’s rough around the edges, as natural given his age, but his ball-handling is already exquisite.
