Juventus set to replace Higuain as they eye new attacker

Juventus are looking for a new attacker, with the future of Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain suspends in the balance, according to a report from Fabrizio Romano on Italian broadcasting source Calciomercato.com today.

The news details how the 32-year-old Argentine attacker, whose contract with the Bianconeri is expected to last till 2021, is no longer a confirmed starter at the club, with the return to form of Paulo Dybala pushing the former Napoli forward down the striking order. The Turin based club are keen to strengthen their attack and purchase a player to compliment Dybala and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, a player like Inter’s Mauro Icardi.

Higuain’s contract is an issue for Juventus, the report continues. The Bianconeri are not happy either with the length or wage guarantee in the agreement and would be happy to sell him for the right price. Nothing final has been decided yet, but signs suggest that the Argentine will be leaving Turin in the coming months
