United States Striker Timothy Weah Joins Juventus
United States forward Timothy Weah has joined Juventus from Lille for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old scored eight goals in 102 appearances for the French club.
Weah played an influential role for the USA at the 2022 World Cup and scored a goal in their draw with Wales in the group stage.
His father George, the president of Liberia, won the Ballon d’Or in 1995 while playing for Juve’s Italian rivals AC Milan.
Timothy Weah was born in the United States but began his professional career with Paris St-Germain, where he won the Ligue 1 title before moving on loan to Celtic.
He was part of the Celtic side that won the league and cup Double in 2018-19.
In other news, Arsenal sporting director, Edu Gaspar, has reacted to the Gunners making a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe has told PSG that he will not be continuing with them beyond his current official deal contract, which expires in the summer of 2024.
That means that he would walk out as a free agent next summer if the Parisians fail to sell him in the ongoing transfer window.
Reports have suggested that Arsenal could look to make a move for Mbappe in 2024.
The reports intensified after the Frenchman was spotted hanging with the Gunners’ Folarin Balogun.
One fan wrote on Instagram:
“Edu will really be sliding into Mbappe’s DMs soon.”
The Arsenal sporting director saw the funny side of things and left five laughing emojis under the post.
