Juve reportedly given boost in Icardi pursuit

TRANSFER TALK: Juventus given major boost in pursuit of striker

January 19, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
The Bianconeri are desperately seeking new attacking reinforcements after one of their star players was ruled out for the rest of the season.

With key player Federico Chiesa set to miss the rest of the season following a knee injury, Juventus have been stepping up their hunt for additional attacking options.

One player that has been on the radar for the Bianconeri is Mauro Icardi. Icardi is no stranger to Serie A, having played for Sampdoria and more recently, Inter, before moving to PSG. However, his time in Paris hasn't been as smooth sailing as the player would have liked, with numerous reports claiming that Lionel Messi's arrival has further unsettled the the Argentinian striker.

And now, reports in Italy claim that Juventus may have been given a major boost in their pursuit, with PSG reportedly mulling a potential loan offer - although Les Parisiens are still ideally hoping for an outright sale.

That would technically work well for La Vecchia Signora as providing some short-term cover for them up front. Although Chiesa and Icardi don't play the same position, with the former being deployed as a winger while the latter is an out and out center forward, it's clear that Juventus aren't looking for a like for like replacement and rather just further general attacking reinforcements.

All in all, it'll be interesting to see how this story develops and if Icardi is a PSG player when the winter transfer window closes at the end of this month.
