JUVENTUS INSIST ON CHICHARITO AND KANTE

Juventus are reportedly still keen on landing the duo of former Red Devils forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante this summer.

The Bianconeri could have lesser talents this coming season and have decided to place the Leicester City player on the priority list for this summer.

The Frenchman was impressive in the midfield as Leicester City in the last campaign and was pivotal to their stunning English Premier League glory.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus also have Chicharito and Lucas Hernandez in its summer wishlist. Kante is one of the most wanted midfielders in Europe right now after his stunning display in the past season. Spanish giant Real Madrid are keen on the King Power Stadium player as they see him as a more affordable option when compared with Paul Pogba, who Juventus want to sell for a record breaking fee. Madrid would likely trade James Rodriguez if they are to make space for the arrival of Paul Pogba, since the player has enjoyed a reduced playing time since Coach Zinedine Zidane took over. But Madrid is reported to be more inclined in landing Kante at a way reduced transfer price with less weekly wages commitment.

Arsenal and a few other EPL clubs also want Kante but the player and his club are yet to decide. Juventus want the player to replace Claudio Marchisio as he continues his recovery from injury. Besides, if the move goes through the club could comfortably sell Paul Pogba as he seems to be a capable replacement.

The club also looks to improve defensively with the acquisition of Atletico Madrid’s centre back in Lucas. Chicharito is believed would join from the German side Bayern Leverkusen to play alongside Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic when the league starts.
