Asamoah and Romulo’s injuries has left Juventus boss Max Allegri in a dire situation at the fullback position. Marotta and Paratici are looking to provide instant relief.
Evra, Padoin and Lichtsteiner are putting in overtime in the wake of Asamoah and Romulo sidelined for at least three months and Caceres’ slow return to the fold. Max Allegri admitted in Thursday’s press conference that ahead of the match in Florence that if the situation doesn’t improve, the club may act for a stop-gap solution.
For this reason, Tuttomercatoweb.com reports, Juventus has leveraged their excellent relationship with Sassuolo in order to avail themselves of the services of Croatian international Sime Vrsaljko this January. The Croat would be the perfect backfill solution, since he plays at right-back naturally but can also dub as a left-back.
Juventus is likely to evaluate Caceres return to form and to move for Vrsaljko should they feel that the Uruguayan’s return to full form is further delayed.
Vrsaljko has played 12 matches for Sassuolo this season, providing one assist in the process.
