Juventus are ready to plot a move for Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca this month. The Old lady are reportedly in line to sign a new Striker later this month after Federico Chiesa sustained an injury. Juventus had a shaky start to the season under Max Allegri but they are slowly finding their form back. They are climbing upwards in the Serie A points table and they will hope to claim the Scudetto this season.
The Italian giants have had a dramatic start to the season. During the summer of 2021, Juventus re-hired the services of Massimiliano Allegri, who replaced Andrea Pirlo as the head coach. As the season began, Juve suffered a major blow after Cristiano Ronaldo decided to leave the club.
The Portuguese striker was reportedly seeking a move away from the club and he decided to leave after spending 3 years. Ronaldo’s departure from Juve at the start of the season shocked the club and Juventus failed to register victories. It took them a few months to recover from that blow but they are now sitting 5th in the league table.
However, Allegri’s side are 11 points away from the defending champions Inter Milan who are sitting at the top. They still have a long season ahead and the Juventus hierarchy are now planning to sign Gianluca Scamacca. The 36-times Scudetto winners want to add reinforcements especially in the front three.

According to reports, both Juve and Sassuolo have sat down to discuss a potential transfer for Scamacca. The 22-year-old Striker is gathering more and more attention during the last couple of months because of what he has been doing on the field. Reports have also suggested that he has emerged as a number 1 target for Max Allegri during the current transfer window.
The Bianconeri will try to sign the big 6-foot-5 striker in the next few weeks. Gazzetta understands that Juventus won’t offer more than €35 million for Scamacca. On the other hand, Sassuolo have reportedly asked for €40 million for the player.
If Juve wants to sign Gianluca Scamacca, they will have to raise funds by selling a few players. The Pink newspaper in Italy understands that the Old Lady will listen to offers for Dejan Kulusevski this month. Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have been credited with an interest for the former Atalanta man.
