Juventus are looking close to add another fire power this season as the latest reports revealed that Fc Porto’s midfield player, Freddy Guarin, could be heading to Turin in this winter transfer market.
This news was apparently stated by Guarin himself who revealed that should he leave Porto this January, moving to the Bianconeri would be the player’s most likely destination.
“It will all be decided between now and Thursday, Either I continue playing with Porto or I will leave. If I do go, then I will leave only to join Juventus.” Guarin supposedly told Colombian Radio Catena Nacional.
The current Serie A leader, has been pursuing the player for quite sometime now and apparently this time they might really take things seriously as the Bianconeri are ready to offer 2 million Euro for a six month loan deal added with 9 million mandatory buy out clause. Meanwhile, reports claimed that Porto themselves are ‘only’ asking around 13 million for Guarin, but there’s still questions whether the Portuguese club would accept Juventus transfer method.
Guarin himself has been catching many people eyes after performing well for FC Porto under Andre Villas-Boas’ guidance last season and also in the Copa America with Colombia. The Colombian international apparently is considering a move in order to step his career up and of course being one of the most popular clubs in the world, Juventus would be a good destination, especially since there are several South American players already arriving there this summer.
However, should Juventus snapped Guarin, they must forget their chance in taking Martin Caceres from Sevilla, as both the Colombian midfielder and Uruguayan defender are all non-EU players. Since the Bianconeri only have one non-EU slot left this winter, they must picked one of those two targets for this January and maybe grabbed the other on the summer market.
