Juventus is in a position where they’ll need a midfielder this January transfer window. Paul Pogba recently failed a doping test and now faces a ban of up to four years. Furthermore, the Serie A side wants to terminate the Frenchman’s contract.
As a result, the Italian club needs a replacement for Pogba, and once the transfer window opens on Jan. 1, they’ll likely be looking at various targets. A recent report reveals that Paris Saint-Germain’s Fabian Ruiz is an option.
Furthermore, TuttoMercatoWeb.com (h/t Le10Sport) reports that Juventus is looking at Ruiz as an option, as the former Napoli midfielder would be on bad terms with manager Luis Enrique and could pack his bags.
The Bianconeri are contemplating a loan move for the 27-year-old. Still, the primary hurdle for Juventus could be the midfielder’s wages. Ruiz earns €6 million annually, exceeding the Serie A club’s new financial limits.
It will be interesting to see what PSG decides to do with the Spanish international. Could a move back to Serie A happen in January, or would the Ligue 1 side hold onto him for the entire 2023-24 season?
