Giménez: Juventus for renewed pursuit of Atlético Madrid man
The Serie A champions are long-term admirers of the defender, whose youth and versatility make him a footballer on several clubs' radars.Arsenal - Atlético Madrid: Europa League 2018
Atlético Madrid's José María Giménez is a central defender with a number of suitors. The 22-year-old's combination of youth, versatility - he can also be used at full-back and in defensive midfield - and committed style of play make him the type of footballer that many clubs would like to have in their team. However, there is one outfit whose interest is of a particularly long-standing and recurring nature: Juventus. And the Vecchia Signora are set to move for him again this summer.
Juve to pull out all stops to sign Giménez, says Tuttosport
According to Tuttosport, the Serie A champions have their heart set on taking Giménez to Italy next season. And although he is an important figure for Atlético head coach Diego Simeone, it is also inescapable that he is yet to convince 'El Cholo' to make him a nailed-on starter (Stefan Savic and Diego Godín are Los Rojiblancos' most common defensive partnership) - a state of affairs that gives Juve hope of luring the player away from the Wanda Metropolitano at the end of the current campaign.
