Mercato OM – Juventus Turin’s English winger, Samuel Ealing-Jr, is entertaining not only OM but also several Premier League clubs.
Bad news for Pablo Longoria and Medhi Benatia in the Samuel Illing-Jr. case. The promising 20-year-old English left-back this season is set to leave Juventus Turin in the winter to replenish their coffers and bolster their midfield without Niccolò Fagioli and Paul Pogba.
Juventus want 20 million euros for Iling-Junior
OM’s first problem is that Juventus Turin are not interested in the loan Samuel Illing-Jr and will request approx 20 million euros According to Sky Italia (Tuttosport talked about a range of €15 to €20 million last week) it will be released in January.
Another concern of OM is English competition in this regard. According to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, this transfer window is definitely not the most reliable, 5 Premier League clubs are on the trail of the Chelsea-trained player : Tottenham, Newcastle, Wolverhampton and Fulham are mentioned. The 5th club is not named.
Our take on the Illing-Jr rumor at OM
Iling-Junior is expensive and very popular, and it’s hard to see how OM would fare in this regard. If we want to be a little optimistic, we can remember that Pablo Longoria and Methi Benatia are former Juventus players and have local connections. Longoria also knows the agency that represents Illing-Jr. Is winning in January enough? It’s a little hard to believe.
