Juventus will be ‘ready to buy’ Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, transfer expert Nicolò Schira told Max Statman exclusively. Schira also talked about potential candidates for Juve’s midfield, players that could leave Turin, an alternative to Vlahovic, Antonio Rüdiger, Matthijs de Ligt and another fan favourite ex-Juventus player.

Juventus have been linked with some midfield reinforcements: Bruno Guimarães, and more recently, Denis Zakaria. What are the chances that one of them comes to Turin in January?


“Juventus really like Guimarães, but he costs a lot. Lyon ask €40M and that’s why this operation is not affordable at the moment for the Bianconeri. Zakaria is a Juventus target, but not only theirs: the Bianconeri are working to close it as soon as they can.” 

According to Max Allegri, Aaron Ramsey will leave this window, but he’s still here. Will he or anyone else leave?

“Ramsey is going to leave Juventus somehow. Allegri doesn’t want to have him, but Ramsey earns a lot (€7M a year), so Juve are looking for a solution in the Premier League, maybe at Crystal Palace… Arthur and Bentancur are keen to leave too. The first one has already reached an agreement with Arsenal, the second one has received a bid by Aston Villa. One of them could leave immediately.” 

Vlahovic to Juventus is a move that has dominated Italian newspapers and websites the last couple of days. Could it happen during the last week of the transfer window or is the summer more likely?


“Juventus has been the first club to ask info for Vlahovic in October, as I anticipated as first. They offered the striker a contract of €6M per year, plus €1M bonus in the next years. His salary will increase year by year. He could stay in Florence this January, because Fiorentina ask €70M in cash. Only Arsenal have offered this price, but Vlahovic has turned down the Gunners’ bid. In the summer, the price will be less than the actual one, because he won’t renew the contract with la Viola. Juventus will be ready to buy him.” 

Another player that has been named for the striker position is Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo. Is there a possibilty that he’ll join Juventus this week? And in the summer?

“The Bianconeri would like to sign Scamacca, who will stay in Sassuolo this January. Inter are in pole postion for the Italian striker in the summer.” 

How about the other Sassuolo stars, Giacomo Raspadori and Davide Frattesi?


“Raspadori is a possible target, Frattesi is between Inter and Roma. The Nerazzuri are confident to sign him, the Giallorossi have 30 percent of the resell. At the moment, Juve have only monitored Frattesi, but no talks opened yet.” 

Chelsea defender Antonio Rüdiger and Paul Pogba are both out of contract this summer and have been linked to Juve. What are the odds that we’ll see them in a Juve shirt next season?

“Rüdiger asks a 4 year contract with €10M per year: Juve can’t afford that. I think he’ll go to Real Madrid if he doesn’t extend his contract with Chelsea. Pogba loves Juve and Turin, but he costs too much for the Italian club. You need to give him €20M per year for 4 years.” 

A few weeks back Mino Raiola said that De Ligt was ready for a new step and that he thought so too. Will he leave anytime soon?


“Eyes on the De Ligt situation: Barcelona, PSG and two big Premier League clubs are watching and thinking about buying him. To sell the defender, Juventus ask at least €80M.”
