Ez Abde, a winger for Barcelona, has received a call from Juventus in preparation for a possible summer transfer
The Moroccan teenager stole the show in the most recent U23 AFCON, leading his team to victory and having an incredible tournament with three goals and assists each.
An impressive loan stint at Osasuna last season came before it. He played a crucial role in helping the Spanish team go to the Copa del Rey finals before falling to Real Madrid.
Despite his improvement in form, the 21-year-old’s future at Camp Nou remains unknown as he is frequently linked with a transfer this summer as part of Barcelona’s summer purge to attain FFP. With regard to the upcoming season, Xavi is reportedly content to keep Abde under his direction due to the team’s dearth of high-caliber wingers and its inability to afford to sign quality attackers. Barca might still consider selling Abde if a compelling offer comes in.
The Moroccan forward is a target for Juventus, who would have to fork over €15 million to wrest him from the Catalan club. The Bianconeri’s financial difficulties are also well known, but they stand a high possibility of making a big profit from the sale of Dusan Vlahovic. In the transfer market, the Serbian striker is regarded as the most bankable asset, with Juve setting a price tag in the neighbourhood of €70 million in the face of interest from European powerhouses.
Given the departure of Angel Di Maria and the uncertain futures of Federico Chiesa and Moise Kean, attacking reinforcements are a necessity for the Old Lady in order to perform at their best next season. The Old Lady just made Arkadiusz Milik’s loan from Marseille permanent while also welcoming Timothy Weah as their first summer signing from Lille. Abde will shortly join Barca’s training camp after taking an extended break to compete in the U-23 AFCON.
