Juventus considering loan move for Vitor Roque

Serie A giants Juventus are reportedly lining up a loan move for disgruntled 19-year-old Barcelona wonderkid Vitor Roque this summer.

According to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport, as relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Vitor Roque is the subject of interest from Juventus. The Serie A giants are scouring the market for a young attacker heading into the summer transfer window. And they have set their sights on the 19-year-old Barcelona prodigy, with a loan approach on the cards.

Vitor Roque and his Barcelona travails

Vitor Roque has cut an increasingly frustrated figure since joining Barcelona from Athletico Paranaense in January. The Blaugrana beat intense competition to sign the Brazilian wonderkid, with Real Madrid and Premier League bigwigs also showing interest in him. However, he could not establish a foothold in the first-team squad at the club in the second half of the 2023/24 season.

The 19-year-old managed only 353 minutes of game time across 16 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals. In addition, Xavi Hernandez’s comments on the youngster before his departure have created speculation surrounding his future. So, it is hardly surprising that Vitor Roque’s Barcelona future is uncertain heading into the summer transfer window.

Widespread reports have claimed that Barcelona will aim to recoup around €45 million by cashing in on the Brazilian international in the summer transfer window. The young striker has no shortage of suitors pursuing him, with Juventus now joining the race to sign him.

Serie A move on the horizon?

Juventus’s interest in Vitor Roque is understandable. Arkadiusz Milik faces an uncertain future at the Allianz Stadium heading into the summer transfer window. In addition, Dusan Vlahovic is a target for several high-profile clubs across Europe. So, it behoves Juventus to scour the market for a striker.

Vitor Roque’s name has thus emerged on Juventus’s wishlist heading into the summer transfer window. The report by Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Mundo Deportivo) has suggested that the Serie A giants want a loan move for the disgruntled Barcelona wonderkid.

However, Juventus might face stiff competition from Premier League bigwigs for the 19-year-old, with Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham also showing interest in him. It will be interesting to see what the future has in store for the teenage prospect.
