Juventus are currently reported to have a keen interest in signing Frenkie De Jong. This comes after reports from Spain that the player wishes to leave Barcelona. This comes after the player did receive a red card in the recent Barcelona Game against Cadiz.
While Netherland’s International has been the talk of the world since he arrived in Barcelona. While in recent times he hasn’t been under the spotlight like he was when at Ajax. Frenkie De Jong has still made sure to leave his mark, this time much under the radar.
Looking at the stats until Game Week 5 of the Laliga. Frenkie De Jong has started in every game in the league. While also being a part of the team of the week this season. In the 5 games he has played, he has already provided 2 assists in the League. He has also been averaging 1.8 key passes and tackles per game. This shows how the player can play as a box to box midfielder.
With his talent on the ball, he has been able to provide those passes into the box. While his work rate off the ball has been unremarkable. The player has been averaging 2.8 successful dribbles per match with a pass accuracy of 92%. Frenkie De Jong was signed by Barcelona for € 75M back in 2019.
Frenkie De Jong To Juventus?
Currently, Juventus play in a 4-3-3 or a 4-4-2 formation depending on the number of injuries within the team. Juventus while being quite the destination for Frenkie De Jong hasn’t been at its best currently. The team is currently in the 9th position in the Seria A winning 2 out of their last 6 games. While on paper this might be the worst thing that could have happened for a giant like Juventus. It isn’t due to the internal rebuild within the squad after selling Cristiano Ronaldo.
Currently, Frenkie De Jong is valued at £81.00m by Transfermarkt. So, if Juventus tries to sign De Jong, they would need to pay around £100 million to Barcelona. The player signed a new contract until 2026 would make this deal quite improbable. If this deal happens next summer, it will be quite the headline stealer
