Juventus reportedly want to sign goalkeeper Simone Scuffet from Udinese to be the long term heir of Gigi Buffon.
The 17-year-old has excelled for Francesco Guidolin’s side since being called into first team action in the midst of an injury crisis at the club.
Such has been the level of his performances that the rookie is now a contender to make Cesare Prandelli’s Italy World Cup squad.
As reported by Sportmediaset.it, any deal struck between the clubs would see Scuffet join the Old Lady in the summer of 2015, after he has another season of development under his belt in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia.
