‘Bouy a universal midfielder’

Dutch teenager Ousim Bouy was an important signing for Juventus last month, his representative has argued.

The 18-year-old midfielder moved to Turin from Ajax in January after a deal was done on transfer deadline day.

“He’s the biggest talent there is when you just look at players born in 1993,” agent Mino Raiola told Tuttosport.

“He’s a universal midfielder, he plays in the Mark Van Bommel position but he scores more goals,” Raiola continued.

“Bouy is a massive loss for Ajax. Juventus made an important swoop by beating a host of rivals to his signature.”

Raiola added that after signing Bouy, the Old Lady were now keen on making a potential move for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba in the summer.

“Juventus need to follow him, but Pogba may still sign a new contract at United…”

Midfielder Pogba, also 18, joined United in 2009 from Le Havre.
