Serie B outfit Brescia claim that Juventus are showing an interest in the highly-rated Omar El Kaddouri.
The 21-year-old has been paired with a number of top-flight sides after impressing at the Stadio Rigamonti.
“Juventus are interested in the player and we have already discussed him with the Bianconeri,” stated Brescia sporting director Andrea Iaconi to Tutto Juve.
“We have an excellent relationship with director general Beppe Marotta and the club. If they were really interested in him then there would be no problems.”
El Kaddouri, also paired with Lazio, is a versatile midfielder who has a Moroccan passport but plays for the Belgium Under-21 side.
Juventus have already done a deal with Brescia for teenage goalkeeper Nicola Leali. “The terms have been agreed for Leali,” added Iaconi. “He’ll be a Juventus player in July.”
