Alex Sandro on the market? Here’s his possible replacement at Juventus

While Juve’s right flank looks secure (if not spectacular) in the presence of Juan Cuadrado and Danilo, the left-back position remains problematic.

Since his arrival in 2015, Alex Sandro has been the key protagonist of the spot, rarely having a real competitor for a starting place.

Nonetheless, the former Porto man’s performance has worsened in recent seasons and the club are considering selling him.

According to Transfer market (via ilBianconero), the management of the old lady is ready to give up the Brazilian left-back, if it receives an offer of 25 million euros.

The source adds that Chelsea have shown interest in Sandro and could offer Emerson Palmieri in return.

However, the Bianconeri have a different player in mind, it is Jose Luis Gaya.

The Valencia man is unwilling to renew his contract with the club which is set to expire in the summer of 2023, and a divorce between the two sides could loom on the horizon.

The Spaniard has been a key member of Luis Enrique in the national team and has attracted interest from Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

But instead of strengthening their La Liga rivals, Valencia would prefer to sell their left-back abroad, which would give Juventus a boost in their pursuit of the 25-year-old star.

The source believes that Gaya is seen as an idea that needs to be carefully analyzed, as the Spain international is reportedly costing at least $ 25million.
