Juventus In Talks To Sign A Second US Wonderkid

Juventus are in talks to sign FC Dallas youngster Bryan Reynolds, according to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian giants are up against Club Brugge and Serie A rivals AS Roma for the right-back, who became FC Dallas' youngest ever homegrown player in November 2016 when he signed his first contract with the first team.

According to Romano, no agreement has been reached for the player, but negotiations are continuing.

Now 19-years-old, Reynolds signed a new four-year contract with the MLS club in September, meaning that whoever is able to lure him away from the United States likely won't be able to do so on the cheap.

Were Juventus to be successful, it is likely that they would then loan him out to gain some experience - with reports linking Cagliari to such a move.

Juventus have had some success with recruits from the US recently, with the loan signing of Weston McKennie from Schalke proving a canny signing.

McKennie has made 15 appearances in all competitions for Juventus this campaign, scoring twice. He largely plays in midfield, but has been known to feature in defence in the past.

Despite the promising performances from the 22-year-old, Juventus are still struggling to live up to their recent standards.

Since club legend Andrea Pirlo took the reigns in Turin, the side have experienced trouble in Serie A - and are currently stuttering in sixth, ten points behind leaders AC Milan albeit with a game in hand on the Rossoneri.
