Juventus eye Gianluca Scamacca to replace Dusan Vlahovic

Juventus are looking to sell striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer and West Ham United’s Gianluca Scamacca to replace him, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Italian football federation recently hit Juventus with a 10-point deduction for financial irregularities.

This punishment forced them down the Serie A table, and they will likely miss out on the Champions League.

Earnings from the competition are crucial for the Turin club. They will have to sell players to avoid sinking into further financial trouble.

Vlahovic is expected to be sacrificed. The 23-year-old arrived from Fiorentina for €80 million but has failed to kick on in Turin.

He has only scored 17 goals in 42 appearances across all competitions. However, he is still a valuable asset on their books, and they are open to his departure.

If they sell Vlahovic, they will need a replacement and are targeting Scamacca.

Like the Serbian, Scamacca has failed to adapt to his new surroundings after his big move. He has scored only eight goals in 27 appearances.

However, West Ham signed Scamacca for £36m and will want to sell him for something close to that figure.

Juventus could make a loan bid with an option to buy, but they will not be alone in the race to sign Scamacca.

AC Milan are in the market for a striker, and they have the Italian international on their radar. They expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave this summer.

Divock Origi could leave the club after only one year and Ante Rebic will follow him. Olivier Giroud is the only striker on their books that will stay.

Milan are also monitoring on-loan Reims striker Folarin Balogun, while Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic, RB Salzburg’s Noah Okafor and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino are other targets.
