Juventus are keeping tabs on some really underrated youngsters and it might pay dividends soon.
Juventus will take on Genoa as they look to consolidate their position in the top four and keep the pressure on the Milan teams. Andrea Pirlo wants to bring in some reinforcements this month in order to make sure his team is well equipped to make a charge for a 10th consecutive Serie A title.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top stories involving Juventus from 13 January 2021.

Juventus have already filled up their non-EU quota and cannot bring in players from countries not in the European Union after signing Weston McKennie in the summer. As a result, Juventus have had to work in synergy with fellow Serie A side Benevento.
Bryan Reynolds will thus join Benevento on loan at until the end of this season and then complete a switch to Juventus from there. The deal has reportedly cost Juventus €10 million.

Tottenham and Juventus in battle to sign Stuttgart winger
Nicolas Gonzalez of VfB Stuttgart
According to The Athletic (via the Daily Mail), Juventus and Tottenham are going to battle for the signature of Stuttgart winger Nicolas Gonzalez. Both clubs are eyeing a summer transfer with Spurs having already initiated talks with the player’s entourage ahead of a potential move.
Gonzalez has been in good form over the past year and has garnered a lot of attention from several top European teams. Juventus and Leeds United are two other teams that have been credited with an interest.
However, Juventus will need to sell players before they can buy new ones and that is acting as a stumbling block for the Bianconeri.
