Juventus and Atalanta held talks on Tuesday regarding the future of Italian Under-21 international Manolo Gabbiadini.
The Old Lady are interested in the 20-year-old who is widely considered as a potential star striker of the future.
Gabbiadini only scored one goal in 23 League games this term, but he’s wanted by a host of clubs including Borussia Dortmund.
Juve are understood to have made Atalanta a €4m offer for a 50 per cent share in the centre-forward.
It is believed that Juve want to take the Azzurrini star this summer and then send him out on loan to a smaller club.
Bologna are an option, but there is a theory that they may use him as a tempting pawn in order to do a deal with Pescara for Marco Verratti.
Talks between Juventus and Atalanta are set to continue.
