While the Juventus management is hard at work to find a new midfielder, coach Massimiliano Allegri isn’t so eager to bring in new players despite losing Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli.

They are after two Premier League options in particular, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Kalvin Phillips, Corriere dello Sport relays.
