Why Juventus can’t afford to miss out on Luis Alberto

Luis Alberto emerges as an intriguing prospect for Juventus amidst the departure of Paul Pogba and the potential exit of Adrien Rabiot from the club this summer.

With his recent announcement of departing Lazio at the end of the season, the Spanish international now stands as a prime candidate for Juventus to consider in their midfield reconstruction.

“I’ve requested the club to end my contract; I won’t take another Euro from Lazio. It’s time to step aside and let others take over,” Alberto stated after Lazio’s 4-1 victory over Salernitana.

Should Lazio proceed with the termination of his contract, thereby rendering him a free agent, Alberto would offer Juventus a significant degree of financial flexibility.

This could facilitate the redistribution of funds to other areas of the squad, potentially enabling the acquisition of additional players to bolster their ranks.

Alberto’s contributions throughout the current season, marked by 4 goals and 6 assists, have proven pivotal in Lazio’s commendable push for European football, positioning the club at a respectable 7th place in the league standings.

In contrast to Rabiot, Alberto not only boasts comparable goal involvements but also marginally higher pass accuracy (84.1% vs. 83.9%) and a superior success rate in dribbling (58.8% vs. 42.1%), despite registering fewer touches within the opposition’s penalty area.

While Teun Koopmeiners has notably excelled in terms of goal-scoring prowess, tallying an impressive 11 goals, Alberto maintains a consistent superiority in on-ball metrics, including pass accuracy (84.1% vs. 81.8%) and successful dribbles (4 more), albeit with a marginally lower goal tally.

Considering Alberto’s relative age and potential cost-effectiveness, particularly in the absence of a signing fee and the likelihood of negotiating more modest wage terms, he presents an enticing option for Juventus.

This is especially pertinent within the context of a potential tactical overhaul under Thiago Motta’s proposed 4-1-4-1 system, wherein both he and Rabiot could find ample opportunities to thrive and contribute effectively to the team’s objectives.
