The Bianconeri have started to rely more and more on young players in the post-Andrea Agnelli era, finding success with various talents including Fabio Miretti, Nicolo Fagioli and Samuel Iling-Junior.

Juventus are one of the few clubs to have a second team in Italy and their model is now paying off, perhaps sending a signal to other teams in Serie A in their search for the next best Italian talent.

As reported by Tuttosport via TMW, Alex Sandro’s absence has forced Allegri to consider a possible replacement in the squad and he has identified Juventus Next talent Dean Huijsen as the right option.

While the 18-year-old is unlikely to play much over the next six weeks, he could be given the chance to make his first-team debut and will slowly continue his integration into Allegri’s squad.
