Juventus director Beppe Marotta confirmed Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolasinac “is an option and we are evaluating signing him.”
The 23-year-old Bosnia international will be out of contract at the end of the season.
He could arrive as a free agent over the summer, but Juve are eager to snap him up earlier if Patrice Evra leaves for Valencia.
“We like Kolasinac, he is an option,” Marotta confessed to Rai Sport ahead of tonight’s Coppa Italia encounter with Atalanta.
“He is an opportunity, as he’ll be out of contract soon. However, he is being monitored by other clubs as well.
“We are evaluating the idea of signing him. We’ll see.”
