Juventus linked with youngsters Konè and Diarra


Juventus look set to continue their investment in younger players and are being linked with Habib Diarra and Emmanuel Konè. The Bianconeri have reduced the average of their squad significantly and have bought through a number of players from their Next Gen team.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Juve directors Cristiano Giuntoli and Giovanni Manna have two French talents in their sights. The first is Habib Diarra, a 19-year-old Strasbourg midfielder who was already linked with the club in August.

The other is Emmanuel Konè, a 22-year-old midfielder from Borussia Monchengladbach, who has been held back this season due to some physical problems.

Diarra, who was  linked with a number of clubs in the transfer window, ended up remaining in France, but is almost certain to leave Strasbourg next year. At Continassa they are planning a new refresh for the midfield and are keeping a close eye on both youngsters with a view to next summer.
