Juventus’ teenage sensation Samuel Iling-Junior has penned a contract extension with the Italian giants, the club confirmed on its official website.
After making his first-team debut this season, Iling-Junior has prolonged his stay at the Allianz Stadium until 2025.
The 19-year-old has been one of the revelations for the Bianconeri this term. He has registered two assists in just three appearances while impressing with his cameos against Lecce and Benfica.
Iling-junior was a long-time academy product of Chelsea before joining the Turin giants in 2020.
The English prospect quickly rose through the ranks at Juve, and he is now seen as one of the trump cards of manager Massimiliano Allegri.
Iling-Junior will hope to build on his excellent start and help the Bianconer in their chase for the Scudetto in the second half of the season.
Besides the English teenager, Juve have also seen academy graduates Fabio Miretti and Nicolo Fagioli take centre stage this season.
The two Italian prospects have become key squad members for Allegri this term. Miretti has made 18 appearances, while Fagioli has scored two goals in nine appearances.
The Old Lady have been hit by off-field controversies this term, with an investigation ongoing for reported false accounting.
However, Allegri will be keen to avoid the issues affecting their performances as Juve will return to action next month.
The Bianconeri finished the first half on a high note by climbing up to the third place in the Serie A table on the back of a six-match winning streak, which included emphatic victories over Inter Milan and Lazio.
Allegri’s men recently registered a thumping win against Arsenal in a friendly. The Turin outfit will face Cremonese in Serie A on January 4.
