Juventus on the lookout for Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona

Perplexing case of Dembele's injury

Italian news source Calciomercatoweb reported that Juventus are interested in Ousmane Dembele. The Serie A team is keen on the Barcelona winger if Lionel Messi joins the Catalan giants. The transfer would cost around €50 million during the upcoming summer window.

Since the arrival of Xavi Hernandez, Ousmane Dembele has been experiencing the most successful phase of his up-and-down career. The 25-year-old faced challenges with poor fitness and attitude issues. But he now improved his performance. Additionally, he regained his position as a regular player for the French national team.

Ousmane Dembele has had a productive 2022/23 season, with eight goals and seven assists in 28 games. However, he has only 18 months left on his contract, and Barcelona is eager to extend it. This scenario has caught the attention of numerous high-profile clubs, including Juventus.

Juventus desperate to get Ousmane Dembele

Massimiliano Allegri will make significant changes to the Juventus squad during the upcoming summer transfer window, amidst ongoing controversies. The manager is keen to acquire a top-tier winger. Since, Angel Di Maria may leave at the end of the season due to his advancing age.

Furthermore, Juan Cuadrado is also reaching his thirties and nearing the end of his tenure at Juventus. The team needs to strengthen their attack with a wide attacker. Ousmane Dembele emerged as a potential candidate, as the Bianconeri seek to enhance their offensive prowess. Additionally, the opportunity to sign the Barcelona winger could arise. Only if the Catalan giants pursue the re-signing of Lionel Messi.

Given Barcelona’s financial constraints, they need to balance their books before registering any new players, which limits their transfer options. As a result, Juventus may perceive an opportunity to sign Ousmane Dembele for a reported €50 million. However, it remains uncertain if Barcelona is willing to consider the prospect of selling the French winger.

Barcelona aims to secure Ousmane Dembele’s future in the long run. Although it is uncertain how they will respond to financial pressures if a suitable offer is made. As such, it remains to be seen whether Juventus will succeed in securing the services of the French winger with a reported €50 million bid. The situation is one to monitor in the coming months.
