Sports Brief highlights five key players in the Bianconeri squad who could be targets for rivals at the end of the season.

Manuel Locatelli

The 25-year old joined Juventus after an impressive Euro 2020 performance, on a two-year loan from Sassuolo with an obligation to buy for €35-million, as reported by Sky Sports. He is one of the players rivals could snap up from Max Allegri.

Federico Chiesa

Chiesa also joined Juventus from Fiorentina and has been impressive for the team. He recently recovered from the ACL injury he suffered last year and is already attracting interest from Barcelona and Arsenal, according to Sport.

Adrien Rabiot

The France international turned down Manchester United in the summer despite the two clubs agreeing a fee, as reported by Mirror UK. He has however not closed the door on a Premier League move and could be playing his final season in Italy.

Moise Kean

The 22-year-old academy graduate is on loan from Premier League club Everton and with crises hitting both clubs, his future hangs in the balance. According to Juve FC, the club could cash out on him if an offer arrives.

Juve's problem is infectious

Sports Brief earlier reported that other teams and players could be affected by Juventus' sanction, and the ban on directors who were on the club's roster and payroll in the past.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who spent three seasons at the club, could also be affected if his transfer is found to be indicted in the current investigations.

Spurs director Patrici's ban is being pushed to be made global by UEFA, while Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentacur are former Juve players in the firing line.
