The imminent departure of Memphis Depay and the doubts generated by Ferrán Torres make it clear that FC Barcelona must sign a striker in the summer for 2023/24. With a limited checkbook thanks to LaLiga’s financial ‘fair play’, the ‘low cost’ options are still the wisest for the next window of passes, for what is known as that of Wilfried Zaha they are currently in the culé orbit.
However, Barça’s plans could be ruined thanks to Juventus. The British evening newspaper ‘Evening Standard’ claims that Juventus are very interested in the 30-year-old player to strengthen their attack in the summer, considering that the pairing of Serbian Dusan Vlahovic and Polish Arkadiusz Milik has not achieved the expected performance. Thus, the ‘Vecchia Signora’ would join Chelsea, Tottenahm and Arsenal among the teams in the ‘race’ for Abidjan.
The Ivorian has 6 goals and 3 assists in 17 games this season with Crystal Palaceclub of the com has decided to leave in the summer after seven seasons in which it has become a total of 89 goals in 447 official appearances, more than 76 assists. Zaha remained permanently at the Palace in 2015 after several transfers from Manchester United, the club that had bought him in 2013 for 11.7 million euros.
At 30 years old, the Ivorian has established himself as one of the most versatile strikers in the Premier League, since can play without problems as a winger on both sides or as a ‘9’. Skilled in aerial play, Zaha combined his height and physical condition with speed and good ball handling, so he would have no problems adding to a scheme like Barça’s, as an inside center or striker.
Juve need a goalscorer urgently
Despite the good series of results obtained in Serie A, those of Massimiliano Allegri continue to show problems to convert. The ‘bianconeri’ add two consecutive victories by the minimum against Cremonense and Udinesematches that suffered more than the account for not being able to reflect their superiority on the scoreboard. Milik’s irregularity and Vlahovic’s physical problems make those from Turin fix Wilfried Zaha, even more so when his signing would produce at ‘zero cost’.
