Transfer News: Arsenal, Liverpool target chased by Juventus, Serie A Giants linked with City midfielder


Juventus is struggling since the start of this season. Juventus was 12th after round 10, with just 3 wins. After 3 back to back wins, they are now placed 6th in Seria A table with 21 points.

Many think that this happened because they drastically changed their team from their last successful season. They had won the domestic league and cup and finished runners up in UEFA Champions League.

But since then there are lots of changes in the team. Charismatic midfielder Andre Pirlo went to MLS to join New York City. His central midfield partner Arturo Vidal joined Bayern Munich. Carlos Tevez went back to his home country and they also sold players like Ogbonna, Pepe, Llorente. Kingsley Coman and Mauricio Isla are also loaned out. To fill that void, they bought Dybala, Khedira, Mandzukic, Neto, Zaza, and Alex Sandro. They took Cuardado and Lamina on loan. That means they have an overhauling change in their team.  Still they want to add further players in their midfield


According to Tuttosport, Juve is ready to pay as many £28m for him in winter transfer window. The 23 year old is quite a bit frustrated about his limited appearance in Real Madrid line up. He is a very much less favorite in between Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, and Gareth Bale. So, he wants to move away to secure the first team action as UEFA Euro 2016 is knocking at the door and he wants to take part that.

Arsenal and Liverpool are also very much interested. He has a very good ball control, composure, creativity, vision. He is a very good passer and an occasional dribbler. So, he can very well fit in both Arsenal and Liverpool. But in Juventus, he will face less competition to start the match. As he links between attack and midfield very well, he can be a good partner of Paul Pogba. Let’s see whether Juventus can force this transfer.

Samir Nasri:

Samir Nasri is another target for the Turin side according to Metro. The Manchester City man is currently injured. This season he started well before got injured. He has to face a tough competition to start in city line up with the likes of De Bruyne, Sterling, Silva, Toure already being there. He is contracted with city till 2019. City is reluctant to sell him but the “Old Lady” wants to pay £10m for him.

If they get these two players then they can play two ways. One way is playing Isco behind the two strikers and Nasri wide. And the other way is playing Isco as No. 10 poisition.
