Juventus To Submit Offer For Wolfsburg Midfielder
Wednesday August 3 2016
In the hopes of strengthening their ever-weakening midfield, Juventus will submit an offer to German side Wolfsburg for Luiz Gustavo.
Bianconeri star Paul Pogba is set to join Manchester United any day now and Claudio Marchisio has been ruled out for almost the rest of the calendar year through injury, so the reigning Serie A champions need to look for reinforcements in the middle of the park.
According to GazzaMercato, they have identified Brazilian international Gustavo as a good name to join their squad and will make a loan bid worth €2-3 million, with the right to purchase him outright for €20 million.
The 29-year-old joined Die Wolfe from fellow German side Bayern Munich in 2013, and has won both the DFB-Pokal and the DFL-Supercup with them.
He played 30 times in all competitions last season, scoring one goal and assisting three.
