Everton join the hunt for Juventus winger Samuel Iling-Junior

In the upcoming January transfer window, Everton has entered the race to secure the services of the promising Juventus talent, Samuel Iling-Junior. However, the Toffees are not alone in this pursuit, facing stiff competition from Fulham, Tottenham, and Aston Villa.

The 20-year-old English youth international finds himself discontented with the limited playing time he has received in Serie A this season. With just four starts to his name, sources close to Juventus indicate that Iling-Junior is unlikely to extend his tenure in Italy beyond his existing contract, which concludes in 2025.

While acknowledged as a remarkably bright prospect, signing Iling-Junior would pose a certain level of risk for Everton, primarily due to his relatively modest exposure to senior-level competition. The young talent has featured in only 22 appearances for Juventus’ first team, contributing to the apprehension surrounding his potential acquisition.

As of the latest assessment on Transfermarkt.com, Iling-Junior’s market value stands at 9 million euros. His frustration with the lack of playing time, coupled with the interest from various English clubs, suggests that a move back to his home country might be on the horizon.

Since the commencement of September 2023, Iling-Junior has participated in two games for England’s U21 team, showcasing his commitment to international development.

Everton, eager to bolster their attacking options, especially following Alex Iwobi’s departure to Fulham on the deadline day of the summer transfer window, seems inclined to pursue Iling-Junior when the transfer window reopens in January. The competition for his signature will undoubtedly intensify, and Everton will need to weigh the potential rewards against the inherent risks associated with acquiring a player with limited top-tier experience.
