Juventus reportedly sent scouts to view 17-year-old Hearts of Midlothian defender Jordan McGhee.
Tuttosport claim the Bianconeri had talent scouts at one of the recent Hearts League Cup games in Scotland.
McGhee is a Scotland Under-21 international and at the age of 17 is already a regular in the first team.
He can play as a right-back or in central defence and this is the kind of versatility that interests Coach Antonio Conte.
Hearts would be very likely to accept a January offer, considering the club is under administration and heading towards relegation.
