Juventus join race for Eintracht Frankfurt star Jesper Lindstrom

Juventus have entered the race for talented Eintracht Frankfurt forward Jesper Lindstrom, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Biaconeri are set to undergo a massive overhaul this summer, with several big-name players being transfer-listed.

Among them is Federico Chiesa, whose future at the Allianz Stadium is up in the air amid heavy exit speculation.

The Old Lady are willing to lose the Italian winger, who has been plagued by injuries over the past couple of seasons, for a suitable offer.

Newcastle United have been credited as the potential suitors for the 25-year-old, but they haven’t come forward with an offer.

Juve have identified Lindstrom as a potential replacement in the event of Chiesa’s departure, but they will have to fend off AC Milan for his signature.

Milan have also been monitoring the Danish talent in this transfer window in a bid to reinforce their attack.

A report from Radio Rossonera claims that Milan are planning to lodge a bid for Lindstrom, who is rated at around €35 million.

The 23-year-old has grown into one of the most wanted prospects in Europe following his impressive performances with Frankfurt.

The Danish star has racked up 14 goals and 13 assists over the last two seasons while playing a big hand in Frankfurt’s Europa League triumph in the 2021/22 season.

Newcastle are also keeping tabs on Lindstrom, but Juve can draw on their good relations with Frankfurt to sign him, having previously raided the Bundesliga outfit for Filip Kostic.

Lindstrom is highly versatile, as he can play as an attacking midfielder and on both wings.

The Old Lady also have Domenico Berardi on their list, but the Fiorentina winger appears to be on his way to Lazio.

Romelu Lukaku remains the priority target to revitalise the attack after Juve edged out Inter Milan in the transfer race for the Belgian.
