Monegasque midfielder tops Juve’s shortlist – Juvefc.com
As the summer transfer market draws to a close, Juventus are now accelerating on several fronts. The management needs to make one or two signings in attack following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, we might also see some changes in the middle of the park. Manuel Locatelli has completed his transfer from Sassuolo after a long soap opera, but he may not be the only one to arrive in this department.
According to Tuttosport Going through ilBianconero, the old lady could be looking to add a new midfielder, especially if Weston McKennie were to leave the club.
Apparently, the American could end up packing his bags if management receives a tempting offer. Several names have been mentioned as possible substitutes, but the source claims that one player in particular may well be the favorite.
Axel Witsel and Corentin Tolisso have both been mentioned, but Borussia Dortmund could block the departure of the Belgian, as the Bayern Munich man has plenty of suitors.
The Bianconeri therefore eyed Aurélien Tchouameni, which seems to do the trick for Max Allegri. The tactician hopes to improve his midfield with a dynamic and physically strong player who can keep the team balanced.
With Monaco dramatically knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers at the hands of Shakhtar Donetsk, Juve’s chances of landing the 21-year-old have only increased.
However, it remains to be seen whether the old lady will have enough time and resources to make such a deal before Tuesday night.
