Juventus are weighing their options regarding midfielder Kenan Yildiz, amidst interest from Arsenal.

According to TUTTOmercatoWEB.com, the Italian giants are contemplating reinforcements for manager Massimiliano Allegri’s midfield during the January transfer window. With a depleted squad, Juventus have their eyes on several players, including Sudakov of Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips, who may leave City to secure a spot in the England squad ahead of the Euros next summer.

The Turin-based club, as reported by local media, are considering a range of alternatives, such as Rodrigo De Paul, Lazar Samardzic, and Eduard Spertsyan, with a focus on strengthening the team’s core.

In the midst of planning for new acquisitions, Juventus are also dealing with the future of their own talent, particularly Samuel Iling-Junior and Yildiz. Yildiz, a Turkish midfielder, has expressed a desire for more playing time, something he’s struggled to find under Allegri, even amidst midfield shortages due to the suspensions of Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli.

Arsenal’s interest in Yildiz presents a potential dilemma for Juventus. While initially hesitant to sell, a substantial offer from the London club, believed to be around the €40 million mark, could sway Juventus.
