Juventus’ search for strikers is a daily subject in the Italian press, especially on TuttoSport. So this Friday, the newspaper has a special article with twelve questions and answers on which forwards the Old Lady could be signing this summer.
Despite having some Premier League names heavily linked, there’s good news for Everton and Southampton fans at the moment.
Tuttosport says that Romelu Lukaku is not on Beppe Marotta’s list, at least not to replace Álvaro Morata, which is the biggest priority now.
The Belgian international was speculated at Juventus especially because of his agent Mino Raiola, but it seems that the interest in him is not strong as had been reported, funnily enough by Tuttosport.
On Graziano Pellè they say there’s the chance that his name was scratched from the Juventus board’s list, but his name is still being whispered backstage, very dramatic stuff.
As the player’s possible departure from Southampton is being well covered in Italy, his links with Juve are almost inevitable.
Tuttosport love making an article for speculations, even when they don’t have much information about it.
When a headline mentions Lukaku or Pellè, it seems like Juve could be close on them, but when they’re in a story of 12 other names, you realise that these are only two options in a big shopping list for the summer.
