Juventus betting on Dean Huijsen as long-term future option

Andy Mattioli

Juventus are reportedly keen on bringing back defender Dean Huijsen at the end of the season.

Huijsen – who is currently on loan at Roma after joining the capital club in the first week of January – is said to impressed the Bianconeri who have been monitoring his progress over recent weeks.

His goal against Cagliari was the culmination of steady improvement under Jose Mourinho and, more recently, Daniele De Rossi.

Huijsen’s deal at Roma is based on a dry loan without the option to make his stay permanent.

Although Roma would like to rediscuss these terms with Juventus, TuttoSport reports that Huijsen is Juve’s long-term option for the future and the Bianconeri plan to recall him once the season comes to an end.

La Vecchia Signora strongly believes in the Dutch talent and are unlikely to let him join a rival on a permanent basis.
