Juventus will target Higuain – report

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain is on Juventus’ summer transfer wish-list, according to a report in Spain.

Marca is claiming that the Argentine was the main reason why Juventus boss Antonio Conte, as well as directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, were present at the Champions League semi-final against Borussia Dortmund this week.

Juventus are known to be looking for another striker even if they’ve already wrapped up the Bosman capture of Fernando Llorente from Athletic Bilbao.

Higuain, signed by Real Madrid from River Plate in January 2007, has scored over 100 goals for the Spanish giants.

However, the 25-year-old has only netted eights times in 48 Champions League games for the outfit.

Meanwhile, in France, L’Equipe are suggesting that Real will sell Higuain in favour of keeping hold of Karim Benzema.

It is being claimed that Real could accept a fee of around €20m for the South American who also has admirers in the English Premiership.
