Juve track Ukraine duo

Juventus were impressed by Ukraine internationals Yaroslav Rakitsky and Andriy Yarmolenko during the Italy game.

The Azzurri won 2-0 in Tuesday's Kiev friendly, but the performance of the home side was enough to alert the Bianconeri scouts.

It is reported that Juve are planning a double swoop for two Ukraine talents over the summer.

Shakhtar Donetsk full-back Rakitsky can play on the right or the left, while his contract expires in June.

This makes the 21-year-old a very appetising prospect on the transfer market, not to mention the fact he has scored three goals in just 11 international caps.

The other target for Juventus is Dynamo Kiev striker Yarmolenko, who is also of interest to Milan after a recommendation from Andriy Shevchenko.

He is also 21 and can play as a left winger as well as a forward.
