Juventus to bolster squad with young starlets.
Juventus will look to bolster their defence in January, primarily by signing Daniele Rugani from Empoli. The Serie A leaders are without Martin Caceres and Andrea Barzagli for the next couple of months, and Rugani has been in excellent form which resulted in a call up to Antonio Conte’s most recent Italy squad.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Rugani would be an easier signing than most alternatives as he is co-owned by the Bianconeri with 13th-placed Empoli- where Rugani has come through the youth ranks. Lille’s Simon Kjaer, Jose Giminez of Atletico Madrid, Fiorentina’s Stefan Savic, and Matija Nastasic, currently injured for Manchester City, are all options for Juventus but their availability remains questionable. Furthermore, if Sebastian Giovinco is sold, Masimilliano Allegri’s side could look to bring in Sassuolo’s Simone Zaza or 20-year-old Domenico Berardi as attacking reinforcements.
International goal machine WILL be making a move in January
23-year-old Andrej Kramaric is said to be the target for a list of top flight clubs in Europe. Having scored 21 in 16 this term, the Croatian has attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Leicester City as well as Juventus and AC Milan overseas.
The hot-shot striker is in prolific form and it is understood that his club HNK Rijeka are in talks to let him go in January for a fee of around £8m. Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Leicester City are all in the race to bring him to the Premier League in January, however interest in Italy from giants Juventus and AC Milan could sway Kramaric’s move. Since joining HNK Rijeka of Croatia in 2013, Kramaric has netted a sensational 37 in 40. This lad is rightfully regarded as hot property in Europe and is likely to make a move in January.
which of these players do you want to see wearing the black and white shirt, me as an Italian would love both Rugani and Berardi or even Zaza joining.
