Without further ado, let's take a look at the top stories involving Juventus from 21 March 2021.

Young Juventus defender Radu Dragusin will become a free agent this summer unless he puts pen to paper on a new deal at the club over the next couple of months. Dragusin only made his senior debut earlier this season and is now set to leave the club in the summer.

According to The Sun, the Eagles are monitoring Dragusin's contract situation and are interested in signing him on a free in the summer. Crystal Palace are looking at the possibility of signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher this summer.

Juventus were desperate to sign a striker last summer and they ultimately ended up signing Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal. Alvaro Morata has been one of Juventus' better players this season and has done enough to earn a permanent deal but it does not look like it's going to happen this summer, according to Todofichajes.

Juventus do not have a lot of money and cannot dish out enough to sign Morata on a permanent deal. However, they will look to extend his loan deal by another year. Signing him permanently will cost Juventus somewhere in the ballpark of €45 million.

Gianluca Scamacca was heavily linked with Juventus in the January transfer window but a deal did not materialize. As per La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), Juventus and AC Milan are still interested in signing Scamacca in the summer.

Scamacca is currently at Genoa from Sassuolo and the report claims that he is valued at around €25-30 million. AC Milan are looking for young strikers who can join and learn under Zlatan Ibrahimovic before eventually taking over once the Swede calls it a day. They have now identified Scamacca as a top transfer target.
