Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici is in England this week and that’s allowed the media around Juventus to drown themselves in transfer rumours.
Paratici has travelled to sell some players to Premier League clubs, which is the plan of many teams around Europe when their bank balance is looking a little shaky.
Several clubs have been linked with several players, and Wolves are lucky enough to have two: Moise Kean and Sami Khedira.
We covered the Kean claims earlier and pointed out it’s Everton who are being much more strongly linked with the forward.
Khedira is very much a Wolves story. Turin newspaper Tuttosport reports the Premier League club have asked about signing the midfielder.
They don’t give a lot of information, other than to say ‘the chances of an agreement are high’.
Khedira is 32 years of age and whilst he was never the quickest, it will be a big ask for him to reach his top level in such a tough environment now. He’ll be on big wages, having arrived from Real Madrid on a free transfer, and has a contract lasting until June 2021 with an option for a further year.
Since 2010 he’s played for clubs (Madrid and Juve) fighting at the top of the table and going into the latter stages of the Champions League.
With all due respect to Wolves, and they have a special place in the Sport Witness heart, is he really going to want to fight for a place in Nuno’s side, get huge English media scrutiny, and try to adapt to all the demands of the league? It doesn’t feel likely, but perhaps he likes a challenge.
