Massimiliano Allegri wants a backup option for Dusan Vlahovic and has identified Marko Arnautovic as his top option, leaving Juventus to overcome two obstacles.

The Bianconeri’s summer transfer window is preparing to heat up, with Paul Pogba being the first arrival, and Allegri is waiting to embrace a new striker, keen to have more options upfront to take the pressure off Vlahovic a little.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, Juventus are now working to pick up Arnautovic but first they’ll have to resolve two issues. The first of these is Moise Kean; the Italian striker is not in the club’s plans anymore and must be re-homed quickly in order to free up some space up front.

The second issue is represented by Bologna, who have no intention of losing the 33-year-old Austrian forward, who is contracted to the club until 2024. The relationship between Arnautovic and coach Sinisa Mihajlovic also works in the Rossoblu’s favour.

Regardless, Juventus are still planning to move ahead for Arnautovic, irrespective of the outcome of a possible swap deal with Chelsea involving Timo Werner and Matthijs de Ligt.

  1. Forget it. If Di Maria did not want to semi-retire or fully retire with this dinosaur coach, what makes people think Marko will jump at the chance. He does have the physicality to be the new Mandzukic, so it will be little surprise if Allegri puts him to work as a defensive type of player.

  2. Forget Werner. He is not a Serie A player and too inconsistent. If we sell de Light then so be it but cash in for him don’t get saddled with other throw away players.

    If Werner was so important and such quality why would Chelsea let him and Lukaku leave. Lukaku didn’t work out but Werner hasn’t exactly lit it up either.

    Juve should try to sign Raspadori. Much more upside than Arnautovuc and he is Italian

  3. robbie raspadori play on the left channel where chiesa plays – we dont need raspadori – hes good but he needs to grow still- maybe roma/ac milan for him.

    we need a cb cover for de ligt / left back and right back and zaniola
