It’s looking pretty rosy for the Italian Serie A League leaders at the moment, sitting top of the table 1 point ahead of their rivals with a game in hand, but with a 2-1 loss to Fiorentina last weekend, it’s becoming evident they still need a couple of additions in the summer to give them a bit more next season. With the likes of Paul Pogba leaving for Manchester United last summer in a record breaking deal, Max Allegri could dip into the transfer market in the summer of 2017 to spend some of the 100 million euros they got in return for the release of Paul Pogba.

There are a lot of rumours in the transfer market at the moment regarding Juventus, and signing anyone in the last week or so of the January transfer window is unlikely, especially seeing as they have already done business in bringing Mattia Caldara to the Juventus Stadium this month, but taking their business into the summer is quite possible. Below we’ll have a look at some of the players Juventus are linked with, and some of the other players that could be available in the summer transfer window should Juventus come knocking.

 

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis is a player that is linked with numerous clubs and could leave Arsenal fans in a summer transfer swap to Juventus. Max Allegri doesn’t hide the fact he is a big fan of the Chilean international, and if Arsenal do not finish in the top 4 of the Premier League this season, then it would be hard for them to keep hold of the likes of Sanchez.

 

Matteo Darmian

Matteo Darmian hasn’t featured as much as he would like under Jose Mourinho, but as the matches in the Premier League are coming thick and fast, he is a player that has been in the starting line up over the last few weeks. Whether he does feature in Mourinho’s long term plans remains to be seen, but the Italian international could opt for a return to his home country through Juventus, as they currently have their eye on another versatile defender. He has been linked with a January move to the Italian giants, but as the January window is coming to an end, it’s looking likely that he will only leave Old Trafford in the summer, should he leave at all.

 

Adam Lallana

Adam Lallana features for Liverpool on a regular basis and as they are currently contending for the Premier League title this season, it would be quite silly for Adam Lallana to leave in the January transfer window. However, there have been rumours he is wanted by Max Allegri at Juventus, so it could be a transfer that happens in the summer if Jurgen Klopp isn’t reluctant to offload one of his current stars.

NZonzi has been a player linked with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Juventus this winter, and if Sevilla have any interest in offloading him in the summer, then he is a player that has the opportunity to play in the English Premier League or the Italian Serie A. He would be a great coup for any club, but if Juventus can entice him in a move away from the Spanish La Liga, he would certainly be a player that can make Juventus an even bigger force next season.

Juventus are linked with many other players from around the world, and whether the above rumours do come to fruition remains to be seen. However, the bookies on Bookmaker Ratings believe the above players could well be on their way come the summer transfer window.
