Turin outlet Tuttosport today brings another piece on Juventus’ chase for a new striker. And once again, Wolverhampton Wanderers star Raul Jimenez is one of the names on the list.
Their article says the 29-year-old has ‘exploded’ in the Premier League this season, and the Old Lady’s pursuit for him has ‘taken off’ on the past few days.
Jimenez is seen by Juventus as an alternative to Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik, who’s currently their priority and would cost around €50m.
It’s said the Wolves player would cost the same, ‘maybe more’, especially because he has a contract running until 2023. Therefore, there’s no clear advantage in going for him.
What could convince the Turin side to make an attempt would be the chance of a swap deal. But for that to happen, it’d be crucial for Wolves to get a qualification for the Champions League, otherwise some Juve players could reject making the move.
Although Tuttosport has previously mentioned the likes of Adrien Rabiot and Gonzalo Higuain in their stories, today they don’t name any players who could become involved in a potential swap.
