Serie A giants Juventus continue to keep tabs on midfielders and they are still monitoring the progress of Ukraine star Georgiy Sudakov.
The Bianconeri have been linked with the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Thomas Partey and Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, but that hasn’t stopped them from looking at other options in the market.
Giovanni Albanese has reported that Sudakov, who featured for Ukraine against Italy, continues to be someone they are keeping a close eye on. If not in January, then the 21-year-old midfielder could become a key target in the summer transfer window.
Shakhtar Donetsk want €30 million to let the midfielder leave, but they are hoping to trigger an auction in the market. Juve want to make sure that they capitalise before other clubs come calling for him. The Bianconeri have been impressed by his skillset and they believe that he could be a replacement for Angel di Maria, who hasn’t been replaced yet.
If there is a possibility of signing him in January, Juve could still make an attempt. But it depends on the situation of Domenico Berardi.
