After Juventus impressed in pre-season and earned a victory against Udinese on the opening matchday of the 2023/24 Serie A season, Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri has a better idea of his preferred line-up and could send some youngsters away to gain more experience.

Players such as Samuel Iling-Junior, Fabio Miretti, and Matias Soule earned valuable game time last season, but it is unlikely that they will get as many opportunities in this campaign if they remain in Turin.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the three aforementioned players as well as Kaio Jorge could leave Juventus to earn more playing time elsewhere in Serie A. Meanwhile, young Uruguayan defender Facundo Gonzalez was signed from Spanish club Valencia, but he has already been loaned out to Sampdoria in Serie B.

Juventus to stick with Cambiaso, Iling-Junior to leave on loan

Iling-Junior is one of the youngsters who is expected to leave due to Andrea Cambiaso making an early impact and the inability to sell Filip Kostic at the desired price. Juventus are thought to be keen to sell the Serbian winger for €15 million, but interested clubs from England and Germany are not willing to meet their demands.

There has been interest from English Premier League clubs, and Bologna were considering signing him on loan, but it is possible that he will join Atalanta and further develop his game under Gian Piero Gasperini.

Miretti has attracted interest throughout in Italy with Monza, Salernitana, Bologna, and Lecce all eager to sign him on loan. His departure will be dependent on the condition of French midfielder Paul Pogba, who has battled with injuries since rejoining from Manchester United.

South American youngsters expected to remain in Italy

Juventus want Kaio Jorge and Soule to remain in Italy so they can further increase their adaptability to Italian football. The Brazilian forward is expected to join Frosinone on loan after spending two seasons sidelined with injuries.

Soule could stay because other wide players are expected to depart from the Bianconeri. If he is permitted to leave, he is likely to join Salernitana on loan despite interest from foreign clubs.

After a tumultuous 2022/23, Juventus seem to have a squad that will satisfy Allegri. However, the youngsters will not be easily tossed aside and they are strategically finding the right clubs and environments for these players to grow.
