Juventus Loan Watch: Kulusevski And McKennie Expected To Fetch Millions But Zakaria And Arthur Most Likely To Return
Written By Jacobs Dunga
The Bianconeri are closely monitoring their players who are on loan in the English Premier League.
Juventus are facing a serious financial issue especially if they get relegated to the Serie B for account falsification that is presently in court.
The record Italian champions could be forced to part ways with some of their stars some of which are already on loan in England.
Dejan Kulusevski moved to Tottenham Hotspur in January 2022 on an initial 18 month loan deal with the option of making it permanent at €35m.
Kulusevski’s option to buy turns obligation should Spurs secure UCL qualification. The North London club are currently fourth but finishing in that position isn’t guaranteed.
However, a fresh talk could still be held incase of a different scenario as the player himself has highly impressed at England’s capital.
Weston McKennie is another prospect to fetch Juventus some millions with his loan move to Leeds United going well according to plans.
Should the Whites avoid relegation, the club will most likely trigger the option to sign the American midfielder permanently with the fee set at €34.5m reports Tuttosport via Calciomercato.
The duo of Arthur Melo and Denis Zakaria are most likely to return to Turin come the end of the season.
Both players are having tough times at their different clubs with the situation not likely to change before the end of the season.

Zakaria has only featured six times in the league for Chelsea plus another four appearances across cup competitions.
It looks as though unlikely that Chelsea will shell out €28m for the Swiss international who doesn’t seem to be in the club’s future plans.
Arthur Melo has endured a difficult career since first moving to Europe with Barcelona in 2018.
He moved to Juventus in 2020 but much had not changed about him and he was eventually shipped out on loan to Liverpool when Jurgen Klopp was ravaged by injuries.
The risk however has failed to pay off with the Brazilian spending most of his time there on the treatment table.
He is yet to make a league appearance under Klopp and has just thirteen minutes of football which came in one game.
It is unlikely that Liverpool will sacrifice the quoted €37.5m for Arthur which makes it more than certain that he’ll return to the Allianz Stadium.
