Freddie Woodman will deserve chance if Martin Dubravka heads to Juventus

The England youth star is currently a back-up goalkeeper at Newcastle United.

Italian giants Juventus are believed to be eyeing up Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. According to Calcio Mercato, the Turin club have identified the Slovakian as a perfect challenger for Wojciech Szczesny’s number one spot with the Bianconeri.

Consider he was reportedly only a £4 million addition, according to The Sun, it is something Newcastle will have to consider. Juventus are likely to offer a handsome fee for the 29-year-old and making a tidy profit on the reliable stopper will be a painful but essential business decision.

It could also open the door to one of the club’s brightest talents.

Freddie Woodman is considered one of the best young goalkeepers in England. The Golden Glove winner as England’s under-20s won the World Cup in 2017, he has had to remain on the sidelines since.


At just 21-years-old he has not been trusted with the number one spot and has largely been below Dubravka, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot in the pecking order.

As a consequence of this, he has been linked with an exit from Newcastle. As reported by talkSPORT, the likes of Arsenal, Leeds United and Celtic are all keen on the player in January – either on loan or temporarily. Those three are just a sample of the ever-growing interested party list.

If Newcastle end up having little choice but to sell Dubravka it will finally be time to give Woodman the chance he fully deserves at St James’ Park. If not? Then they might as well sell him.
