Exclusive:wolves agree long term deal with premie league player

Juventus will look to sell Samuel Iling-Junior this summer and harbour hope that the England under-21 international can be used as a makeweight in a deal to bring in Michael Olise or Pedro Neto from Premier League duo Crystal Palace or Wolves.

HITC Football understands that, after struggling to force his way into Massimiliano Allegri’s first-choice XI this season, the Serie A giants will cash in on their former Chelsea whizzkid.

Samuel Iling-Junior has spent four years in Turin, and has made over 30 first-team appearances across the last 18 months or so. But with a host of clubs looking to take the London-born winger back to England, Juve may seize the opportunity to make a sizeable profit.

Some reports indicate that Iling-Junior will be allowed to leave for around £16 million.

Samuel Iling-Junior could return to the Premier League

HITC have been informed that there is interest from Crystal Palace and rivals Brighton and Hove Albion. West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also watching his situation very closely.

Juventus would love to include Iling-Junior as a makeweight in a deal that would see Olise or Neto – two of the Premier League’s most gifted and most coveted widemen – move in the other direction. But there is an acceptance behind the scenes at the Italian giants that Olise and Neto are more likely to join one of England’s big-hitters instead.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are among those keen, and capable of making offers for Juve cannot match.

Iling-Junior, meanwhile, has one goal and two assists to his name this season. Opportunities have been few and far between, however, with Filip Kostic and Andrea Cambiaso ahead of him the left-footed left-winger in Allegri’s pecking order.

Iling-Junior, should he join Crystal Palace, would be the latest highly-rated young Englishman to pass through Selhurst Park. The one-time Chelsea starlet is not likely to be a direct replacement for Olise, however. He prefers to tread the touchline on the left rather than cut in from the right.

Matias Soule, another Juve starlet linked with Palace, may be a more fitting successor. HITC understands that Soule, so impressive on loan at Frosinone, has now set his sights higher than the club who last week hired Oliver Glasner as Roy Hodgson’s replacement.

According to The Guardian, there was interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich before Iling-Junior chose Juve back in 2020.

“He’s got the technique of a street player but also the physicality to match. It’s the perfect combination of the two,” explains Saul Isaksson-Hurst, Iling-Junior’s long-time trainer. “And he’s a very intelligent player as well.

“Samuel is unique because he is so technical and can use both feet, so he could probably play anywhere. He’s got everything.”
