Juventus are working to sign Julian Alvarez from River Plate. The in-form Argentine striker is a top target for AC Milan.
The January transfer window opens in one month. AC Milan were one of the most active clubs on the summer mercato. The Rossoneri signed a record number of players and are expected to be move again in January.
One of AC Milan’s biggest problems so far has been the big number of injuries in attack. Rarely have Giroud, Pellegri, Ibrahimovic and Rebic been all available. For this reason Maldini and Massara are considering signing a new striker in January and Julian Alvarez is high on their list of targets.
The Argentine striker is having a great season with River Plate demonstrating he’s ready to move in Europe soon. In 18 league appearances so far, Julian Alvarez has scored 17 goals and has provided 6 assists. Excellent numbers that have attracted the attention of many important clubs, including Juventus.
Todofichajes reports that Juventus are ready to snatch Alvarez from AC Milan. Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri has asked Juventus to sign a new centre forward when the mercato opens. Allegri is reportedly not happy with the current roster and Alvaro Morata will likely return to Atletico Madrid at the end of the season. In addition, Paulo Dybala is pushing to have his national teammate in Torino.
Juventus are already working to repeat what happened with Kaio Jorge last summer. Alvarez has a release clause of 25 million but his contract expires in exactly one year. River Plate are open to sell their star man if an offer of 20 million euros arrives. However, considering that Alvarez does not aim to renew, the 20 million figure is negotiable.
