Juventus have been linked with the move of Kenan Yildiz, a 17-year-old midfielder who just finished his contract with Bayern Munich.
He was highly sought after by European clubs while he was on the Bavarians’ books, and most of them now want to add him to their squad.
Juve have been investing in their youth teams every summer, and he could become the next player they add.
Corriere dello Sport He affirms that they and Barcelona are two important suitors that the young man has.
Other clubs have withdrawn from the race and Juve are ahead of the Catalans in the race.
They will be looking to move fast and secure his signing in the coming days and have him available to play with their under-19s.
Juventus FC says
We have been investing heavily in our youth team recently, and that should continue.
Players like Nicolo Fagioli and Fabio Miretti have shown that we can produce top-tier players from our youth academy, and that should convince Yildiz to make the switch.
Max Allegri will be watching his development and will no doubt call him up to the senior Bianconeri if he does well enough in their reserves.
