Juventus are keen to sign a center-back for the squad. According to a report by Tuttosport, Arsenal center-back Gabriel is their priority. Gabriel Magalhaes is considered as a replacement for Matthijs De Ligt who joined Bayern Munich. Various clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester City had expressed their interest in the Juventus defender De Ligt who was brought in as a long-term replacement for Giorgio Chiellini. However, a falling out between the Juventus hierarchy and the camp of Mathijs De Ligt led to the defender departing Juventus even though contract extension talks were fully underway between the player and the club.
Currently, Juventus are rebuilding its squad. They have had six signings in the transfer window. Bremer, Pogba, Di Maria, Kostic, and Paredes are the new players who have joined Juventus this summer. However, they still want two players, a left-footed midfielder and a left center-back. According to the report by Tuttosport, the process has already begun. However, it will start in earnest only after the Qatar World Cup ends.
Juventus wants a left centre back the most
A new center-back is a priority for Juventus in the next transfer window. The favorite for this role is Arsenal’s, Gabriel Magalhaes. However, luring the defender away from the emirates is not going to be an easy task nor will it be cheap. Gabriel has a contract with Arsenal till 2025. The arrival of William Saliba meant that Gabriel will see an impediment in his playing time. However, this is not the case at all as Gabriel remains an integral piece of the team at Arsenal. Moreover, he is trusted by Mikel Arteta as one of the most important players in his squad. As things stand, it looks like Juventus will find it very difficult to lure the defender away from Emirates.
