Destiny Udogie ends the season strong and quickly climbs the Juventus shortlist for the left-back position. The Udinese prodigy has scored twice in a row against Fiorentina and Bologna. He now has up to four goals in 2021-2022.
That Bianconeri keep several options in mind. They want to offload Alex Sandro and his lumbering salary, Calciomercato reports. They’ve inquired about Renan Lodi but Atletico Madrid are unlikely to let him go unless for a sizeable offer. Emerson Palmieri could be a more viable target if Olympique Lyonnais don’t buy him out after the loan period.
Juventus might prefer to bring in a youngster in the likes of Sandro or Luca Pellegrini, and AZ Alkmaar’s Udogie and Owen Wijndal would fill the bill. Udinese acquired the 19-year-old for €4m plus €1m surcharges from Verona last summer. In his first season as a regular in Serie A, he played 31 games.
The two sides are already in touch for Nahuel Molina. That Zebrett Both are unlikely to sell their starting full-backs. Although Brandon Soppy is waiting in the wings. They’ve also already signed Festy Ebosele on a free transfer from Derby County.
Udogie spoke about the interest between Juventus and Napoli in a recent interview: “When prestigious clubs are after me, it means I’m fine and I’m happy about that. I’m flattered but my focus is on Udinese and I don’t think much about the transfer market.”
