The latest transfer idea for Juventus still comes from Lille: Zhegrova for the winger


Cristiano Giuntoli’s third shot for the Juventus from Lille? The Bianconeri have not only defined Michele Di Gregorio from Monza and are not only close to Riccardo Calafiori from Bologna. They are working hard for Teun Koopmeiners of Atalanta and the Juventus sporting director has in his sights, after Tiago Djalò and Timothy Weah, another player from Lille, a team from which Victor Osimhen also drew in the past. It’s the outside Edon Zhegrova.

Who is Zhegrova
Born in Germany, he then played in the youth team of Flamurtari in Albania, then at Pristhtina in his native Kosovo. Then in 2015 he went to Belgium to Standard Liège, from there St. Truiden, then Genk who sent him on loan to Basel, in 2022, in January, as mentioned at Lille. At twenty-five, the attacking winger of Paulo Fonseca’s team has already cut his teeth in very different leagues and is an undisputed leader of his national team, where he has played practically all the matches so far (34) with 4 goals to his credit . Purchased from Lille for 7 million euros from Basel in January 2022, he has a contract until the summer of 2026 with the French club with whom he scored 12 goals with 10 assists this season.

In the tiles of Chiesa and Felipe Anderson
Thiago Motta could make him play as a winger in attack, in those positions now occupied by Federico Chiesa and which Juventus thought of handing over to Felipe Anderson who then with a U-turn decided to return to his homeland and go to Palmeiras. So the club is active in recryuiting for the department and that of Zhegrova is now the hottest name for Giuntoli.
