Kwadwo Asamoah, Centre Midfielder, Age: 23
Grade: A | Combines physicality and skill. He's able to orchestrate play whilst winning back possession. Superb backup to the MVP midfield.
Martín Cáceres, Utility Player, Age: 25
Grade: A | Relentless motor; good fit as a wing-back in a 3-5-2; strong right-back; solid man-marker; can play left-back and centre-back but needs to start week in, week out in those positions, otherwise he'll be error-prone.
Endeared himself to Juventus supporters with a brace against AC Milan during a successful loan spell.
Mauricio Isla, Utility Player, Age: 24
Grade: A | He's at his best as a wing-back. He was decent as a centre midfielder last season, but Antonio Conte has signed the Chilean for the 3-5-2. Isla made a bizarre comment about wishing to be a Real Madrid player, even though he had yet to play a single minute for Juve.
Lúcio, Centre-Back, Age: 34
Grade: B+ | Quality squad player, especially on a Bosman. He accumulated 112 tackles and 140 interceptions last season, but his kamikaze approach to charging out often left his Inter Milan teammates exposed.
Sebastian Giovinco, Second Striker, Age: 25
Grade: B | To avoid Sebastian Giovinco becoming Fabrizio Miccoli 2.0, Juve resigned the Parma forward on the back of one elite season. The 25-year-old was alright during the 2010-11 season, but he exploded last season. It remains to be seen if Giovinco is a big fish in a small pond. Juve needs to play him every week if they want him to emulate his performances for Parma.
Transfer Summary: Conte is stockpiling talent for two reasons. 1. He's covered if long-term injuries occur. 2. He wants to contend for the UEFA Champions League trophy.
