Juventus is looking to bring in a dream partner striker for Ronaldo this summer. Aubameyang and Milik are prime targets.
Juventus will sign a new striker this season. This in turn is taking place to give a helping hand to Cristiano Ronaldo. The Italian side who were chasing Arsenal top scorer Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for the upcoming transfer window has shifted their focus to another player.
Napoli could not secure any goal in the clash against Juventus in the Coppa Italia final match. But the Naples won 4-2 of penalties. Juventus is most likely to bring Arkadiusz Milik as a new striker for the 2020-21 campaign.
Juventus official is hopeful of strengthening their attacking region in the upcoming summer transfer window. While a reinforcement is heading towards Turin. Gonzalo Higuain might take an exit this summer. The appointment of Maurizio Sarri was thought to give light to Higuain but nothing like that happened. The Argentine international had a gloomy season and is thus believed to move out when the transfer window opens.
The chase for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is stopped for a while as it appears Milik is considered ahead of Aubameyang. The 26-year-old has given an impressive season for Naples. He has scored 25 goals so far in all the competitions. The goals are 13 more than that of Paulo Dybala and 17 more than Higuain’s. Signing Milik would surely give a helping hand to Portugal International. Juventus completely relied on Cristiano Ronaldo this season and doesn’t want the same in the next season.
Earlier, Juventus was ready to raid in Arsenal for securing the services of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for the next season. And Bleacher Report makes claims it’s currently Milik as a top target for Juventus. Sources also claim Juventus have completely ruled down the reports of any links with Aubameyang.
Milik might be preferred over Aubameyang
However, this would open doors for other European clubs to make bids for Arsenal top scorer. Aubameyang has only a year left in his current contract to run down. Either Arsenal has to offer a new contract or make him leave for nothing in June 2021.
Barcelona has been long term admirers of the Gabon international. They were linked with Aubameyang as a replacement for Luis Suarez. The striker is entering the twilight years of his career and Barcelona wants to offload him.
Real Madrid has been admirers of the Gabon international. The availability could tempt them to make a move. Premier League rivals were initially at the top but, after making a dream signing of Bayer Leverkusen striker Timo Werner. The Blues have withdrawn the interest from the Arsenal hitman.
Manchester United is also chasing few big names and is also much content with their available options including Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, and Odion Ighalo at Old Trafford.
