Juventus, Khephren Thuram likes midfield. And watch out for a return to Zirkzee

Full speed ahead for Douglas Luiz, considered the ideal reinforcement for Juventus’ midfield. The Old Lady feels somehow guaranteed against possible flashbacks from Arsenal, where sporting director Edu Gaspar has respect for the boy and is obviously familiar with the Brazilians: there is also a precedent, in September 2022 Aston Villa rejected the 30 million from the Gunners and then renewed with Douglas Luiz.

Remaining in England, Juve negotiates with United thanks to Greenwood’s approval in their pocket. Regardless of Rabiot’s fate, the other pivot in the Juventus midfield will be Koopmainers, with whom there has been an understanding for some time, given Giuntoli’s excellent and long-standing relationships with the boy and his family: the agreement with the ‘Atalanta is asking for 60 million compared to the 45 that the Juventus club is stuck with, which intends to bridge the gap with technical compensation. Meanwhile, the Dutchman will miss the European Championship due to a muscle problem.

One more indication for the midfield: they really like it Khephren Thuram, the younger brother of Inter player Marcus, who has a contract expiring in a year at Nice. The player is on the list, there is also talk of an outline of a negotiation: it is clear that the strings of all the maneuvers at stake for the midfield must be drawn. Watch out, however, for some renewed maneuvers for Zirkzee: the negotiations with Milan are not so smooth, Juventus had already moved and are returning to monitor carefully, reveals the Corriere dello Sport.
