Euro Paper Talk: Liverpool can tick Juventus attacking sensation off January ‘shopping list’ with €40m offer; Chelsea to hijack Man Utd, Newcastle chase for Bundesliga centre-back

Kenan Yildiz remains a major target for Liverpool

Liverpool have been told that they could sign a top Juventus talent if they are prepared to cough up €40m in January, Man Utd are set for disappointment over another Juve star, while Chelsea are looking to hijack Erik ten Hag’s chase for a Bundesliga centre-back.


Liverpool have learned that Juventus are potentially ready to cash in on young starlet Kenan Yildiz, who has become a major target for the Reds.

It was revealed earlier this month that Liverpool were ready to make their move for Yildiz, with sporting director Jorg Schmadtke having closely followed the 18-year-old following a recommendation from Jurgen Klopp.

And now, Gazzetta dello Sport states that the Anfield outfit now have the attacking midfielder firmly on their ‘shopping list’ for January.

The Serie A side signed Yildiz, who has also appeared on Arsenal’s radar, from Bayern Munich in 2022 and gave him an opportunity to play regularly in the first team earlier this season.

And while Juve have seen enough to renew the player’s contract until 2027, having already rejected loan proposals, that is not stopping Liverpool making their move.

The report says that Klopp’s men ‘cannot be overlooked at all’ by Juve, who are ready to hand veteran midfielder Adrien Rabiot a new deal.

Juve willing to do business for the right price

Journalist Paolo Bargiggia revealed to TV Play the conditions in which the Old Lady are willing to let the talented midfielder move on.

“Juve would sell Yıldız in the event of a right offer. The valuation is €40m,” he said.

However, there is no mention as to whether Liverpool are willing to pay that much money for a teenager who has only featured five times for Juventus this season.

Yildiz is though considered to be one of Europe’s brightest attacking midfield talents and has already been capped three times by Turkey despite his young age.

It just remains to be seen whether Juve would accept a more realistic offer for the player in the new year.
