Juventus are going through a difficult period, with the club enduring a fall from grace over the past couple of years. They have recently closed the financial year with a loss of €250 million – the highest in the club’s history.

But that has not deterred the Italians from keeping tabs on the market. In fact, a report from MARCA suggests the Bianconeri have already identified several targets for the summer of 2023, one of which is Real Madrid ace Marco Asensio.

Juventus have been keeping track of the Spanish international for some time now and could consider a move at the end of the season.

Asensio himself has not enjoyed the best of spells at Real Madrid lately. He has fallen behind in the pecking order amid dwindling form and a series of injuries. Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo’s rapid rise to prominence has not helped his cause either.

It has led to the playmaker featuring in just 47 minutes of action this season, and with his contract at Santiago Bernabeu expiring in 2023, many expect the player to leave Real Madrid in the near future.

This has put Juventus on red alert. The Bianconeri consider Asensio as an ideal target due to his vast experience at the highest level of football, coupled with his attacking qualities that could go a long way in enhancing the club’s creative prowess in the final third.

Juventus are ideally looking for players that offer the experience to the table. Asensio, to that end, fits the bill well, having featured in 239 competitive matches for Real Madrid. He has also won three Champions League and La Liga titles.

And with the Spanish international likely to be available on a free transfer, Asensio could prove to be an ideal target for Real Madrid. However, luring him to Turin might not be easy, as AC Milan are also involved in the contest.

Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
