The absence of key midfielders like Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli has prompted Juventus to explore the January transfer market for reinforcements.

Currently, the club’s radar includes three distinct midfield targets, each bringing unique qualities to the table, as revealed by Franco Leonetti.

Leading the pack is Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, who has captured the attention of the Juventus hierarchy due to his defensive solidity, physical presence, and exceptional ball-recovery skills.

Højbjerg’s robust style of play aligns with the team’s needs and could provide an essential element in the midfield.

Additionally, Rodrigo De Paul is another prominent figure on Juventus’s wishlist. His versatility to perform various roles in the midfield, combined with his overall quality, makes him an attractive prospect.

De Paul’s ability to bridge the gap between the midfield and attack, acting as an advanced playmaker, is a dimension that the Old Lady currently lacks.

Slightly behind these two options is Lazar Samardzic, a player closely monitored by Juventus’s Sporting Director, Cristiano Giuntoli. Initial contacts have already been established, indicating a genuine interest in the young midfielder.
