Juventus may be ready to sell Mathias Soule for around £23 million in January with Premier League pair Newcastle United and Crystal Palace sending scouts to hold talks over the talented Argentine. 

As to the report by Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus is probably going to pursue Atalanta’s Teun Koopmeiners, a midfielder who is Dutch internationally, by selling before making a purchase.

And since Atlanta wants to pay more than £40 million for Koopmeiners, who is expected to test The Old Lady’s financial limits, Juventus is apparently willing to clear some cash by selling off two of their most promising young players.

As little as £13 million might be used to acquire Samuel Iling-Junior. The England U21 star, who was formerly with Chelsea, is eager to return to London and play for Tottenham Hotspur.

A further £23 million, meanwhile, could be enough to convince Juve to give up Soule too. Newcastle United and Crystal Palace reportedly met Allianz Stadium director Cristiano Giuntoli ahead of the 2-1 win away at Monza a fortnight ago, with both clubs expressing their interest in the twinkle-toed Soule.

The 20-year-old forward is on loan at Frosinone this term. Soule already has six goals in just 13 starts, cutting in from the right onto his favoured left boot like his idol Lionel Messi.

“Obviously, I’m inspired by Messi. I love him because he is a fellow Argentinian,” Soule tells DAZN, the Messi influence clear to see in his dynamic dribbling and his keen eye for goal.

“I also liked (Eden) Hazard when he played at Chelsea and Neymar at Barcelona. I’m always trying to dribble. Then, if I find enough space, I try to pick out my team-mates with through balls.”

Recent comments from Italy manager Luciano Spaletti indicated that he was eager to give Soule a call-up, but the young player made it plain that he was only interested in following in Messi’s Albiceleste footsteps.

“Giodo Angelozzi, the sporting director of Frosinone, tells Tuttomercatoweb that he can play as a midfielder, but he can also play as the right winger in a 4-3-3. Given his quality.”

“He reminds me of (Domenico) Berardi, who I had at Sassuolo.” He can reach stratosphere status if he can score goals consistently.

At Newcastle, Soule would give Eddie Howe further quality in the wide areas, providing competition for Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron and co. Crystal Palace, however, already have the exceptionally-talented Michael Olise playing in Soule’s preferred position on the right.
