Report: Wolves eyeing move for Juventus defender Radu Dragusin

Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to have made an approach for the young Juventus defender Radu Dragusin.

According to DigiSport, the Wanderers are looking into the possibility of signing the Romania youth international, who stands to leave the Italian giants for free this summer.

Dragusin, 19, has made four appearance for Andrea Pirlo’s first-team so far after making his debut back in December.

But regular minutes are currently difficult to come by for the youngster, with Juve having ground to make up to catch Inter Milan at the top of Serie A.

The Old Lady are said to be determined to tie Dragusin down to a new contract.

Both Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are ageing and more game time could well await Dragusin next season at the Allianz Stadium.

But nothing has been signed yet, and Wolves are said to be circling.

It was claimed by Tim Spiers via The Athletic in January that the club would look into bringing in a new centre-half this summer.

Dragusin has big potential

He’s not featured too much in Juve first-team colours, but by all accounts Dragusin has a big future ahead of him.

The Bucharest-born warrior was named on UEFA’s 50-strong list of players to watch out for in 2021, with their description of him reading that he is ‘imposing’, ‘tall’, ‘strong’ and ‘skilful’.

Goal have also recently reported that Dragusin has been compared to Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk, whom he idolises.
