Strasbourg Prodigy Top Option Bolster Juventus Midfield

Juventus could add one midfielder and Habib Diarra has emerged as the frontrunner among their rumored targets. The Bianconeri will sell Denis Zakaria to Monaco and Nicolò Rovella to Lazio. Enzo Barrenechea will join Frosinone on loan. Instead, Bologna and Salernitana are after Fabio Miretti, SportMediaset relays.

Arsenal demand €30M for Thomas Partey, who’s 30 and has robust wages. The price tag of Sofyan Amrabat is in the same ballpark, and there’s stiff competition. Nice ask for no less than €40M to part ways with Khephren Thuram. Potential makeweights Koni De Winter and Luca Pellegrini are no longer available.

Diarra figures to be more attainable for Juventus. Strasbourg could accept a €20M bid. They turned down €15M from Wolfsburg recently.

Cristiano Giuntoli, who’s reportedly a big fan of the youngster, is expected to lodge an offer shortly. Weston McKennie has long been rumored to leave but no worthy proposal has arrived thus far.

Our Take on Juventus and Diarra

It seems that the director is listening to Massimiliano Allegri concerning whom to sell, and shipping off Rovella is baffling as the sum isn’t that high and he was their purest ball-handler, but he’s hand-picking the few additions. The prospect is a very credible target, but it could be hard to convince the Strasbourg brass to sell a talent that could potentially make his way to Chelsea in the near future.
