The Turin giants are desperate to play their best football next season with Champions league their main ambition. So, they are eyeing an attacking duo transfer of Adama Traore of Wolves and Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid.
Club legend and new boss Andrea Pirlo won’t withstand any nonsense approach from the club with the emphasis now on sensible signing. Alongside Luis Suarez from Barcelona, they want to bring these stars to Serie A. That is according to the sources from Football Italia.
Pirlo wants Traore
The club is in real buisness after sacking Maurizio Sarri last month to bring in less experienced Andrea Pirlo. Under Sarri, Juventus managed to win the Scudetto but not in admirable fashion. They also faced a disappointing loss to Lyon which eliminated them from the last 16 stage of the Champions league.
Now the club is turning towards new direction with Pirlo at helm. One of the first name on his wish list is Wolves’s flashy winger, Adama Traore. The 24 year old has taken Premier league by storm with his antics on the right flank. He helped his side finished an admirable seventh place in the Premier league and to a quarterfinal stage in the Europa league.
Pirlo is said to be impressed by his quality. He wants Traore to partner Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala in the attack. The Bianconeri faced a lack of pace on the front line relying solely on Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal scoring class even at his age. Pirlo wants a change in that concept.
A return for Morata?
Other reports claim that Alvaro Morata could be on his way back to Turin with Juventus considering him along with Barcelona’s Luis Suarez. Although the Urugyan seems more likely to join, a return cannot be denied.
The Spanish striker probably played his best days of his career at the record Serie A holders. On loan from Real Madrid at the time, Morata became one of the influencial strikers in club history. He scored 15 goals in 63 appearances with most of his strikes coming on crucial stages.
Alvaro never looked the same after getting sold to Chelsea. The 27 year old struggled badly on English soil. It forced him back to Spain where he ply his trade with Atletico Madrid, Real’s city rivals. But we never found the remarkable Morata again.
Pirlo is optimistic to have him though. The legendary midfield believes Morata can revamp his career in Black and White. The player himself is said to be unhappy with the game time he receives under Simeone. His wife is also Italian so a homecoming may be on the cards. Atletico won’t let him go cheap without fulfilling their $64 million investment they made on him.
