Juventus have gone about their business in a composed manner this transfer window and have already made some big moves. But Andrea Pirlo and co. continue to be linked with some high-profile stars as Juventus look to further bolster their squad before the transfer window is shut.

Without further ado, let's take a look at the top transfer news and rumours involving Juventus from 25 September 2020.

Sami Khedira is reportedly all set to terminate his contract with Juventus. The German midfielder has one more year left in his contract but Andrea Pirlo has deemed him surplus to requirements.

Gianluca DiMarzio also reported that the contract termination could happen as early as the coming Monday. Fabrizio Romano has reported that Juventus is considering selling Douglas Costa as well.

Manchester City interested in signing Daniele Rugani

Manchester City continue to be interested in Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani, according to reports. City are on the lookout for a new partner for Aymeric Laporte and had been sounding out the possibility of striking a deal for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

However, they haven't been ready to match Napoli's asking price and are now looking at alternatives. Daniele Rugani has struggled to break into the first team at Juventus. Bonucci and Chiellini continue to start at the back for the Bianconeri and thus the 26-year-old is keen to move on.

Raul Jimenez says he remains 'open to everything'

Raul Jimenez has not closed the doors to a move away from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Mexican striker has been linked with both Juventus and Manchester United.

Jimenez has been consistent for Wolves over the past couple of seasons and has many admirers in Europe. The 29-year-old broke onto the scene at Benfica in the 2017-18 season.

However, Juventus have now signed Alvaro Morata and Manchester United reportedly remain committed to their efforts to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. So it's not clear whether either club is going to turn to Jimenez again.

Speaking at a London embassy event in Mexico, Jimenez said,

 “I have three more seasons left [on my contract]. If I stay here at Wolves, I’d be very happy. We know that anything can happen and there could be a change. I’m open to everything.
“I already had the luck to play some games [in the Champions League]. It’s something incredible and it’s in my plans to play again, but first I have to do what I have to do with Wolves.”
