Juventus are chasing after two targets to bolster their squad for cheap: Felipe Anderson and Mario Hermoso, whose contracts are expiring. They are in touch with their respective entourages to try setting up the Bosman deals, TuttoSport informs.
The Brazilian winger has halted the negotiation with Lazio to assess other offers. He demands €4M per year. The Bianconeri will soon meet with his sister and agent Juliana Gomes.
Juventus are also pursuing Hermoso on top of Felipe Anderson. He has a strong bond with Atletico Madrid. He could accept a pay cut and stay. His camp and the Colchoneros diverge on the length of his new deal. He’s potentially open to new proposals. His wage request is similar to the Lazio winger.
The Old Lady wants to limit the spending, but those salaries would be within their parameters. They plan to move on from Alex Sandro in the back, but they have already signed Tiago Djaló and also have Dean Huijsen waiting in the wings. Inter and Roma are also keen on the Spaniard, SportMediaset informs.
Our Take on Juventus, Felipe Anderson, and Hermoso
The buzz about the Brazilian is insistent, but it still feels like it comes from his entourage rather than the suitors. He’s not a great fit tactically nor economically given their new course, especially following a paltry campaign. Adding another defender hinges on Daniele Rugani and Huijsen, but it could be a leverage play by his agents in that case too.
