After realizing Inter isn’t giving up on Serie A so easily, Juventus are determined to add more depth to their already deep squad.

Ivan Rakitic is the focus of Juventus’ January efforts, per Calciomercato.

Bianconeri already spoke to Barcelona about Rakitic in September. However, the teams couldn’t find an agreement, which led to the Croat staying in Barcelona.

Despite him staying, Rakitic’s situation has gotten progressively worse. The midfielder is riding the bench for almost every La Liga or Champions League match this season.

Former Sevilla man even publicly spoke about his tough situation at Barca recently.

With his contract expiring in the summer, Juventus probably won’t be pushed into a high transfer fee in January.
