Some big names are going to be leaving Juventus this summer, and there could be a lot of promoting from within when it comes to replacements. Here is how things may change for the Bianconeri.

Rovella to return to Juventus and Frattesi interest remains

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, (via TMW), Juventus will bring Nicolo Rovella back from his loan spell at Monza and he is expected to operate in central midfield like Paredes would whenever he featured.

After showing signs of potential when Genoa were in Italy’s top flight, the 21-year-old has played an instrumental role in the Brianzoli midfield as they went on to finish 11th in their maiden Serie A campaign.

With Rabiot set to leave, Juventus want to replace him with Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi, who has been linked with the Bianconeri in the past. The 23-year-old has been an impressive performer in the Neroverdi midfield for the previous two seasons and he is a player capable of making late runs into the penalty area.

Although Rabiot had his greatest season ever with the Bianconeri, scoring 11 goals in all competitions in 2022/23, Frattesi would be an excellent replacement for the 28-year-old and also be a long-term investment for the Italian giants.

Juventus to build around youngsters like Fagioli, experience from Pogba

According to Corriere dello Sport, (via TMW), Juventus have a few youngsters that they want to build the squad around for the future.

The likes of Nicolo Fagioli and Fabio Miretti are expected to feature prominently in midfield while Samuel Iling-Junior, Tommaso Barbieri, and Matias Soule are seen as promising players in the wide positions. Despite his inconsistencies, Moise Kean might still have a place in attack.

Meanwhile, the Bianconeri defence will not go through many changes and still possess enough experience to ensure security at the back. Danilo, Gleison Bremer, Daniele Rugani, Alex Sandro, and Federico Gatti should stay as well as goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Filip Kostic will be expected to provide quality crosses from the left wing while Manuel Locatelli and Paul Pogba will be given greater responsibility in the middle of the park.

After a tough season for the club, this is a great chance for Juventus to rebuild their squad and prepare for the future instead of looking for a quick return to the top.
