According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus has identified Lloyd Kelly as the most likely option to reinforce the steel of the club’s defense. The English player’s contract with Bournemouth will expire in June 2024. “Bianconeri” absolutely did not have to spend a transfer fee to bring Kelly to Allianz Stadium.
The Turin team’s leadership wants to recruit Kelly to fill the void left by Alex Sandro. The Brazilian player is expected to leave Juventus after 9 years of service.
There are many similarities between Lloyd Kelly and Alex Sandro. Both are left-footed and can play at full-back and center-back positions. In terms of aerial combat, Kelly is definitely rated higher than his senior. The defender born in 1998 has a height of up to 1m90.
The Bristol-born player started his career at the local team. In 2019, Lloyd Kelly joined Bournemouth and gradually became an indispensable link in the “Cherries” squad. Up to this point, Kelly has appeared in 8 matches in the Premier League and 1 time in the Carabao Cup.
In addition to Kelly, Juventus also targets two other potential names, including Lille’s Tiago Djalo and Atletico Madrid’s Mario Hermoso. According to the Italian press, the chances of the “Old Lady” successfully recruiting Djalo and Hermoso are not high.
