Juventus have high hopes for Pol Lirola

Italian champions Juventus believe that talented defender Pol Lirola will quickly develop into an important member of the squad in Turin, according to Tuttosport.

The 19-year-old rejected the opportunity to join Barcelona in favour of signing for the Bianconeri after graduating from the Espanyol academy and he has since shown a great deal of promise.

After impressing playing for the club’s youth sides, Lirola made several appearances for the senior team in pre-season before he was loaned to Sassuolo.

The former winger, who now operates as a right-back, fared pretty well in the two starts for the Neroverdi and Juventus officials are already convinced he is good enough to command a place in the squad for the 2017/2018 season.

With Stephan Lichtsteiner almost certain to leave in the January window, Lirola could be challenging Dani Alves for a starting berth, and chances are that first team experience earned at Sassuolo will have made him better prepared for what awaits him next term.
