Juventus Transfer Rumors: 7 Stars Linked to the Old Lady

0 of 7

    Juventus have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund's Mario Götze—but so have half the clubs in Europe.

    Götze isn't the only player Juventus have tracked, though. If you're willing to dig a little deeper, you'll find a bunch of skilled players who could be on their way to Turin—or across town—in January.

    Let's get right to the list.

1. Josep Ilicic, Palermo

    Josep Ilicic, a 23-year-old Slovenian international midfielder, has been linked with a move away from Palermo.

    According to SkySports, Juventus, Fiorentina, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are interested.

    Palermo's chairman is saying Ilicic won't be going anywhere in January.

    We'll see.

2. Mats Hummels, Borussia Dortmund

    Mats Hummels is a 22-year-old German international center-back. He's also a teammate of Götze's at Borussia Dortmund.

    According to Goal.com, he's a Juventus target, too.

    Italian sources claim Hummels would cost something around €15 million.

3. Angelo Ogbonna, Torino

    Goal.com is also reporting that Juventus are interested in Italian international center-back Angelo Ogbonna.

    Problem is, he plays for Serie B side Torino, who are Juventus' crosstown rivals.

    Ogbonna says he'd never play for Juventus. We don't believe him.

4. Dennis Aogo, Hamburg

    Juventus have reportedly planned a €7 million move for Hamburg defender Dennis Aogo.

    Aogo's agent says Aogo, a German, wants to stay in Germany.

    Imagine that.
