Juventus: Solving the Bianconeri's Striker Conundrum

Much has already been written about Juventus' problems in the attacking front. The Bianconeri have been struggling to find any sort of consistent play at the striker position since Antonio Conte took the reins, and the departure of club legend Alessandro Del Piero certainly didn't help matters.

During the summer transfer window, the team appeared to be desperate to bring in additional forces to help bolster the position. In the end, they had to settle for Arsenal-loanee Nicklas Bendtner and the returning Sebastian Giovinco.

Three months later, the problems haven't gone away. With the January transfer window now fast approaching, it seems like the team is back on the market for another striker.

But given the current economic climate of Italian football, options might be limited. Most top strikers are already cup-bound to their respective teams, making them unavailable to the Bianconeri for use in the UEFA Champions League.

Juventus might not have the best strike force in Europe with regards to talent, but their respective players aren't exactly scrubs, either. Antonio Conte has had difficulties finding the right combination of attackers, and as a result, the team has decided to go with whoever has the hot hand.

In this article, we'll try to make his job a little easier. We'll take a look at what each player brings to the table and determine what the team's ideal combination would be.
