Juventus is working on creative ways to land 19-year-old American right-back Bryan Reynolds out of Major League Soccer's FC Dallas.
As previously reported on my Here We Go notebook for CBS Sports in late December, Reynolds' representatives have been in contact with Juventus as well as Roma and Club Brugge as the race to sign the next big American gem heats up. On Thursday, Juventus contacted FC Dallas and offered a loan with an obligation to buy for $7 million dollars, which roughly translates to €5.7 million. Juve are waiting for a final answer from Dallas before advancing their talks with Reynolds' agent to agree on personal terms.
It's worth noting that Juventus have reached the limit and cannot sign any non-EU players in the January transfer window. Arthur, who came from Barcelona, and American Weston McKennie, who came from Schalke, already occupied the two slots granted by Serie A.
