Juventus’ young defender, Dean Huijsen, presently on loan at Roma, finds himself amidst a competitive pursuit as Tottenham Hotspur enters the fray alongside Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig.
At a mere 18 years old, Huijsen transitioned from Juventus’ youth ranks to make a mark with the senior squad in Serie A, earning crucial game time before his loan move to Roma earlier this year. His stint at the Stadio Olimpico has been fruitful, marked notably by his debut goal, prompting speculation that Roma seeks to extend his loan for the upcoming season.
Given Huijsen’s youth and the rapid escalation of his transfer market value in recent months, extending his loan could serve as a beneficial option for both Juventus and the player to foster his growth.
Recent reports from Tuttojuve and TeamTalk have thrown Tottenham into the mix alongside Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig in the pursuit of Huijsen. Tottenham’s willingness to make substantial investments, exemplified by their €50m acquisition of Cristian Romero from Juventus, suggests their serious intent in acquiring promising talents.
While Juventus seems hesitant to part with Huijsen at this juncture, they may entertain the notion of bolstering his value further or even recalling him to fortify their defensive setup in the future, as suggested by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
