Juventus continue playmaker search

Juventus are still thought to be looking for a playmaker, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Chelsea’s Oscar on the shortlist.

The Bianconeri were heavily linked with Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder in January, but the Dutchman ended up staying in Turkey, while Mkhitaryan’s agent has said he would be an ideal player for the Turin side.

According to Tuttosport, the Old Lady are still determined to bring in a playmaker and have spoken to Borussia Dortmund about the Armenian. It’s reported that the Bundesliga side made clear they would not do a deal in January, but the summer remains an option.

Adnan Januzaj of Manchester United is also believed to be a target after failing to break into new manager Louis van Gaal’s plans on a regular basis.

A more expensive solution is said to be Oscar of Chelsea. The newspaper believes that the Brazilian would cost around €40m, but could be an option should Juventus sell Paul Pogba in the summer.
