Juventus sign ‘the next De Ligt’

Malaga defender Dean Huijsen, 16, has joined Juventus snubbing moves to Sevilla and Real Madrid, his father revealed.

Huijsen has signed a three-year deal with the Serie A giants and will play in the Under 17 sqad from next season.

His father has told Voetbalzone, that many La Liga clubs, including Real Madrid, Real Betis, Sevilla, Alavés and Villarreal were interested in signing the centre-back who opted to move to Italy instead.

Goal.com and Calciomercato.com report Huijsen is tipped to become the next Matthijs de Ligt, not only because both defenders are Dutch but also because of their similar characteristics.

De Ligt joined Juventus from Ajax in a €85m deal in the summer of 2019.
