Juventus are reportedly looking to sign the French winger of Barcelona Ousmane Dembele in the upcoming summer transfer window and the Bianconeri are ready to launch the first bid.
Dembele has struggled with fitness throughout his time at Barcelona. He picked up multiple muscle injuries and was also accused of lack of discipline off the pitch. The 24-years-old winger has made 116 appearances in all competitions for the Blaugrana and managed to score 30 times over four years.
Barcelona bought the Frenchman from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017 as the Neymar replacement for €105 million-plus a reported €40 million add-ons. Dembele’s contract with the Catalán giants will finish June 2022.
So, if Bianconeri wants to buy the talented winger, this summer will be the perfect time as his price will drop down because he will remain only one year in his current contract.
Will Juventus go for the Barcelona winger Dembele this summer?
According to the report in Italy, Juventus are looking to bolster their attack, and Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is one of the targets for the Bianconeri when the transfer window opens in the summer.
The Old Lady preparing to shell out a sum of €40 million to sign Barca’s two-footed winger. Dembele is not eager to extend the contract with La Liga giants and Barcelona could sell their star man in the summer rather than losing him for free next season.
Ronald Koeman’s side are looking to rebuild their squad as well as Juventus are hoping to do next season. And if Barcelona get the money from Dembele it will help them to invest it in other areas of the pitch.
If Juventus can manage to finalize the deal with Barcelona and Dembele can stay fit then it will definitely be a very good addition for the Bianconeri. However, if the winger continues to struggle with his injury issues then he will become another Douglas Costa for Juventus and hard to move him on. So, Juventus have to be very careful before making a final decision.
