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.

Head Coach of German side, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Roger Schmidt heaped praise on Mexican star striker, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, citing his intelligence and nose for goal as two of his principal qualities.
The German club hosted Hertha Berlin on Match day 32 over the weekend and were able to cement their place in third and the accompanying automatic berth in next season’s UEFA Champions League group stage.
Schmidt gave an interview where he said:
“’Chicharito’ is very important to the team because he’s a player with extraordinary ability.
“As an attacker he’s very intelligent at getting into position, creating space and freeing up room for his team-mates, but is also always available to receive the ball. On top of that, he has a knack for finding the most dangerous position to score a goal,” he added in the interview with the club’s in-house television station.
Schmidt, who saw the Mexico international score the winner over FC Schalke 04 added:
“He works really hard for the team, as he showed on Saturday, fighting until the end when we took a 3-2 lead. He’s also a great support defensively. There’s an aspect to our play, both defensively and offensively and ‘Chicharito’ does this very well. You could see this in that third goal he scored on Saturday after an 80-metre sprint.” Continue reading LEVERKUSEN COACH HEAPS PRAISES ON STAR PLAYER CHICHARITO
After having scored with Mexico during the international break, Chicharito continues his good form by scoring for his club Bayer Leverkusen in a game against Wolfsburg on Friday.
With his side playing at home and leading by one goal, Chicharito scored a magnificent goal from outside the box. Just outside the box, Karim Bellarabi found Chicharito, who did not miss the target with a sweet curling shot. He was only a substitute that entered on the pitch at the 61st minute.
It was the 15th league goal for Chicharito, but he has not been scoring for the last 6 games for Bayer Leverkusen. It seems that the international break has had some great benefits for him.
Chicharito also played a part in the third goal. He assisted VladenYurchenko with a sublime pass to help his team win the match. This result put Bayer Leverkusen back into contention for a Champions League place.
The first goal was scored by Julian Brandt, who after a quick one-two with HakanCalhanoglu found himself inside the box. He could not miss from this range and Bayer Leverkusen found themselves leading 1-0. Continue reading Chicharito continues good form with Bayer Leverkusen
