Juventus chase veteran striker but internal hurdle blocks move
After signing Dusan Vlahovic last January, Juventus now have a top striker they can rely on for many years to come.
However, the Bianconeri still need to bolster their ranks with a striker who can serve as a capable replacement for the Serbian bomber.
According JuventusNews24the Old Lady has identified Marko Arnautovic as the ideal profile for the role.
The Austrian has enjoyed a solid campaign with Bologna and can act either as a replacement for Vlahovic or as an attacking partner.
However. the source notes that the club’s pursuit faces an internal hurdle in the form of Moise Kean.
The report explains that to make room for Arnautovic, Juventus would have to offload Kean first.
The young Italian is a young product of the club who returned to Turin last summer on a first two-year loan from Everton.
The Bianconeri have an obligation to buy the player inserted in the contract, but they hope to find a formula to get rid of the 22-year-old who endured a sub-par campaign under Max Allegri’s tutelage.
Juve FC says
Unfortunately, that’s how the transfer market works, and Juventus can’t go from strength to strength until they cut some of their dead wood.
So we’ll have to wait and see if Federico Cherubini and company will be able to find a solution for Kean before launching an attack on Arnautovic.
