The names for the Juventus attack
Romelu Lukaku and Dusan Vlahovic, Moise Kean and Alvaro Morata. The Juventus transfer market, according to the latest news and rumors of today 22 August, revolves around a poker of forward names. The stalemate on the Turin-London axis continues. The negotiation between Juventus and Chelsea for the possible exchange of centre-forwards is still at a standstill, on consolidated positions. To sell Vlahovic to the blues, Juve are asking for Romelu Lukaku and a balance of around 40 million, which Londoners currently consider excessive. In London, the Belgian is waiting for a Juventus signal and continues to snub – at least for now – the Saudi Arabia hypothesis: in the new football ‘paradise’, however, the market closes on 20 September and therefore there is time for a plan B Lukaku can afford to wait for Juve until the end of August, while the Roma hypothesis does not seem feasible: as Sky Sport points out, in addition to the financial details of the operation, Chelsea can only make one last loan deal in this transfer market session.
In Turin, meanwhile, other solutions are also being evaluated. Juve, who will not play in the European cups, could sell Moise Kean. The striker born in 2000 has been reported on the radar of Milan and a couple of English teams, with Fulham particularly interested. If Juve were to give up the striker, they could replace him with a well-known face: 31-year-old Alvaro Morata, who has already worn the black and white shirt in two different phases of his career, could return from Atletico Madrid.
