Despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to stay in Turin next season, Juventus have reportedly made Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus their priority transfer target.
After finishing fourth in Serie A last season, 13 points behind champions Inter Milan, Juventus are looking to add more firepower to their roster.
According to Tuttosport, Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Dusan Vlahovic, and Andrea Belotti are among the objectives.
Juventus are reportedly interested in acquiring Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus. Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a transfer away from Juventus, but he appears to be staying there. Juve bosses are said to have met over the weekend to identify Jesus and former striker Kean as their main targets.
Jesus, 24, has struggled to get into Man City’s first squad since joining the club in 2017; he was in and out of the lineup last season as City frequently chose to play without an conventional striker.
However, Kean has struggled since joining Everton from Juventus in the summer of 2019, but he had a fantastic loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain last season, scoring 17 goals in 41 games.
Ronaldo has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, and incoming Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is a renowned admirer of the 36-year-old attacker.
Moise Keane struggled for Everton but had a fantastic loan period with PSG. But, it appears the four-time Ballon d’Or winner is content to stay in Turin for another season.
Juve were said to be interested in selling Ronaldo for roughly PS25 million, and the Portuguese legend seemed amenable to the notion.
When asked about the rumors, he stated, “Whatever comes will be for the best.”
But, Ronaldo’s representative, Jorge Mendes, is said to be in Turin to discuss the potential of his client signing a new one-year contract.
