Juventus keen to retain Kwadwo Asamoah amid Galatasaray talks
Juventus are likely to reject a €8 million bid by Galatasaray who are interested in the services of the Ghana international player, Kwadwo Asamoah.
The 28-year-old has been a subject of transfer speculation and reports on Tuesday suggested that he had agreed personal terms ahead of permanent move to the Turkish giants.
According to reports, the Bianconeri’s would like to keep hold of the player for the time being, but that could change, and they are likely to talk to Asamoah and decide on a solution.
There reason being at the moment Juventus has four fullbacks. New signing Mattia Di Sciglio can play on both sides, but he will seemingly feature predominantly on the right unless another right sided fullback is brought in.
As of right now,Asamoah is second on the depth chart at left back, and anywhere from 4th to 7th at central midfielder.By this logic, it would be foolish to get rid of Asamoah unless there is a replacement.
The former Udinese star has capped 69 caps for Black Stars, having scored four goals.
