Juventus Transfer Rumours: Bianconeri Must Grab Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez

As always with transfer rumors, until the player is wearing your team's colors, don't count on it.

That being said, speculation continues to swirl as Gonzalo Higuain made it clear publicly that he will leave Real Madrid this summer, according to ESPN FC.

Now the speculation begins: Where will he go?

ESPN FC recently reported the player's agent told Marca there is no deal in place, but there are some strong links between the Argentine striker and Italian giants Juventus, according to Sports Illustrated. However, like all transfer rumors, there is always news to the contrary—in this case, reported by Marca.

We'll see.

In the meantime, what would Higuain's talent mean for the Old Lady? A club that didn't lose a Serie A match in 2011-12 and won the Scudetto convincingly in 2012-13. 

Their only weakness last season?

They didn't have a consistent striker.

The midfield is overflowing with talent, their back line is strong, and there's absolutely no need to even mention the man between the posts. 

It only makes sense to use this summer to bolster their attack. 

Their best striker last season was Fabio Quagliarella, and Antonio Conte didn't seem interested in using him consistently. Mirko Vucinic and Sebastian Giovinco were used most often, but Giovinco was inconsistent as a finisher and Vucinic tended to pass rather than shoot on way too many occasions. 

Alessandro Matri was consistent—consistent in wasting chance after chance, that is. Truly, he can never be a starting option for the Bianconeri again. 

So rather than continue with this absurd platoon of strikers, why not get two guys that will guarantee your side yet another Scudetto as well as perhaps a Champions League final appearance?

Gonzalo Higuaín scored 16 times last season in his rotation with Karim Benzema for Real Madrid. It's high time for him to be a guaranteed starter for a major club. 

Countryman Carlos Tévez is also linked with the club in the Daily Mail and would add an incredible one-two punch up front for Juventus that would make them a completely unstoppable force. 

They could sell Matri and Vucinic if money is a concern, which we all know it's not, to afford the transfers. 

With Andrea Pirlo and Gianluigi Buffon surely at the end of their careers, why not give yourself a true chance at Champions League hardware one last time for these two legends?

These are two players that appear eager to join the giants of Torino. They would be affordable (considering the type of exit clauses surrounding the likes of Edinson Cavani), and they would bring instant peace of mind to Conte when selecting his lineup as they deliver.

Not attempting to acquire both strikers would be a mistake. Only time will tell if Giuseppe Marotta agrees.
