Juventus continue their hunt for a champion thumbnail

This summer Juventus promised their fans a big signing and even though the transfer market is still in its initial phases it looks that Juventus will be sticking to their promise as they have already started negotiations with several high profile players. Obviously not all of them will join but the fact they started the negotiations so early means that they will sign one or two high profile players.

The players on this shopping list are the following:

Carlos Tevez – The Argentine striker wants to leave Manchester City with Italy being one of his favourite destinations. It has yet to be seen if Tevez is ready to join a team that will not be participating in a European Cup although at the right price he may be ready to make the move as he did when he joined Manchester City. In that sense it seems that Juventus are ready to increase his salary.

Sergio Aguero – Aguero was the first player Juventus showed interest in as Atletico Madrid President, Gil, declared. He said that Juventus were the only club that showed interest in him but the buy out clause of €45m might be a stumbling block. Gil is not ready to negotiate a lower price to sell Aguero. Recently it has also been reported that Real Madrid are interested in Aguero. Should Real Madrid sign Aguero, Juventus could have the opportunity to sign another Real Madrid striker.

Gonzalo Higuain – In my opinion Higuain is one of the most underrated players. His goal ratio is one goal every two games. It appears that Real Madrid have decided to sell Higuain for a fee of €15m to have the funds to sign Aguero. If such reports are true striking such a deal would be a bargain for Juventus as they would get a champion for the fraction of the cost.

Karim Benzema – Another Real Madrid striker is on the radar of Juventus. Benzema never had an ideal relationship with Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho, therefore it always seemed that he would be on the way out this summer. Recently there has been a change in scenery as Benzema declared that he will be staying at Real Madrid and that he will fight for a place. This still has to be seen cause if Real Madrid sign Adebayor and Aguero then they will have to offload a striker whom most probably will be Benzema.

Alexis Sanchez – Alexis Sanchez reputation has grown exponentially in recent years. He was always touted to become a great player and in the last two seasons he has definitely been expressing his qualities. In the World Cup he also played his part with his great technical ability and rapidness. Sanchez would be a great signing for anyone but for Juventus he would be a unique signing as Sanchez would bring with him that flair that he currently misses. Udinese are ready to sell their prized asset but it seems that Juventus will have to cough up €40m to sign the Chilean star.

Giuseppe Rossi – Giuseppe Rossi is another player that Juventus have been monitoring. They were always interested in him but never excelled in trying to buy him. It appears that this summer Rossi will be leaving Villarreal but to join Spanish giants, Barcelona.

Those are the six names that Juventus are interested in. Do you know any other players that Juventus are interested in? Let us know!
