Choupo-Moting subject to interest from Juventus

The summer transfer window is only a few months away, so clubs have started to set out transfer plans. Bayern Munich have already been linked with numerous players as they identify three areas to address this summer. Likewise, there is also interest in Die Roten players from other top European clubs.

According to Tuttosport (via calciomercato), Juventus are interested in signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting when the transfer window opens this summer. The Italian club want the Bayern striker as Dusan Vlahovic’s replacement as Moise Kean is expected to leave at the end of the season.

Choupo-Moting’s current deal in Bavaria is due to expire in 2023. He has been a decent signing for Rekordmeister since arriving on a free transfer in 2020. The 32-year-old striker has managed to score 18 goals in 47 appearances for Rekordmeister in 18 months. The Bavarian club have decided to extend his contract after a productive first season.

The Cameroon international has expressed his satisfaction working at Bayern, so it will take a very tempting offer from Juventus to lure him away from Bavaria. Die Roten will also be reluctant to part ways with the veteran striker as finding a replacement striker for Robert Lewandowski is a big headache.

Unless Die Roten consider bringing Joshua Zirkzee back into the first team, selling Choupo-Moting makes no sense. Zirkzee is enjoying a productive loan spell at Club Brugge. The Dutch striker wants to fulfill his potential at Die Roten but he will need consistent playing time from next season.

In the presence of Lewandowski, it is difficult for a striker to get consistent playing time. Choupo-Moting is ready to play the team role, which Zirkzee may not prefer at this stage of his career. Juventus will have to come up with a very good offer to change Die Roten’s mind about Choupo-Moting this summer.

Juventus rival Bayern for Gravenberch

Apart from being interested in Choupo-Moting, Juventus are also set to compete with Rekordmeister for the signing of Ryan Gravenberch from Ajax. According to Italian journalist Giovanni Albanese (via GIFN), Juventus have already held talks with Gravenberch regarding a summer move.

Bayern have been heavily linked with Gravenberch in recent days. The Dutch midfielder’s contract expires in 2023, so Ajax will be looking to cash in during the summer transfer window. Mino Raiola, Gravenberch’s agent, has worked extensively with Juventus on various transfers. Raiola’s presence in the negotiations for Gravenberch may give Juventus an advantage over Die Roten.
