English media report that Juventus want to rival Liverpool for the signing of Bayern Munich’s Xherdan Shaquiri.
The 22-year-old is currently on World Cup duty with Switzerland but has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months.
Any move for the player by the Reds is said to be dependent on whether or not they are successful in signing their number one target, Southampton and England’s Adam Lallana.
Juve are reported to be monitoring the situation closely but it is said that Liverpool remain in pole position to secure the player’s signature.
They are claimed to be ready to make an opening bid of around €18m for the attacking midfielder.
