Samuel Iling-Junior is the youngest player on the first team and has one of the highest upsides. He logged a mere 318 Serie A minutes in his debut season last year, but showed plenty of flashes.
The wing back picked up his first two career assists four days apart in back-to-back outings last October. The first came in a Champions League group stage loss to Benfica, contributing to two goals in just 21 minutes. Later that week he set up the winner away to Lecce just 41 seconds after coming on. But, an ankle injury in that same game slowed his momentum and it took until May to find consistent playing time again.
Both Everton and Forest apparently want to bring the shifty Englishman to the Premier League. Nothing materialized yet and a full season of Iling-Junior in Turin should excite fans. That is if he can break into the rotation on a consistent basis. Either way, expect a bright future for one of many exciting prospects in the squad.
There’s a world where Soulé and Iling-Junior become Juve’s starting wingers of the future. A lot would have to go right, but the young Argentinian is also full of potential.
Soulé has less than 500 top flight minutes to his name as well, taking the pitch in 13 league matches last year with four from the start. The 20-year-old scored his first Serie A goal with a tap in, rebound header to cap off a 4-2 win over Sampdoria in March.
He’s done well with Juventus’ youth squads, helping lead the U19s to the semifinals of the UEFA Youth League in 2022. Soulé appeared nine times for Argentina’s youth national teams to date as well. In true Argentine footballer fashion, he’s highly skilled with the ball and embraces breaking down defenders.
Experience is what Soulé needs right now and he should pounce on any opportunity. If so, he could carve out a role as a bit of a super sub for Allegri this year.
