Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has been urged to keep an eye on Sunderland’s Jobe Bellingham to secure a rising talent ahead of potential competition.
Spazio J cover the Sunderland man today and how Giuntoli should be keeping an eye on him moving forwards as he continues to impress in the Championship.
They explain how last night saw the Golden Boy awards take place in Turin, where Jude Bellingham cleaned up given the year he is currently enjoying.
The Real Madrid star had been speaking ahead of the awards ceremony about the subject of the world’s rising talent with Tuttosport, in which he named who could be his potential heirs in 2024.
“First of all, Arda Güler, who has now recovered from the injuries that prevented him from making his debut for Real: he is a phenomenon, we see him in training, and we are enchanted by him.
“Then my former teammate Jamie Bynoe-Gittens from Borussia Dortmund. And finally, my brother Jobe, a thoroughbred striker like our father.”
Those words ‘could sound like a clue’ for Juventus and Giuntoli according to the website, with Juventus having already ‘tested the waters’ for Jobe Bellingham in the past.
He’s now at Sunderland and impressing and the belief is that if he ‘imposes himself’ as his older brother did, the Bianconeri could do more than think about him.
That remains to be seen and whether he can deal with the extra burden being put on him given his brother’s success or, alternatively, if it actually inspires him to more.
His brother certainly thinks he’s one to keep an eye on moving forwards and Juventus may have their eyes on Sunderland more often in future.
