Melo a wanted man

Four clubs are being linked with a move for Juventus enforcer Felipe Melo, according to reports.

The Brazilian has been made available for transfer after he was omitted from the side's pre-season tour of America.

According to Turin daily Tuttosport, Paris SG are said to be very keen on the former Fiorentina midfielder.

Leonardo, the club's new sporting director, has identified the Brazilian international as a possible target.

The former Inter boss knows the player given that they were at Flamengo together in 2002.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that the South American is also wanted by Corinthians, PSV Eindhoven and Galatasaray.

The Turkish giants seem extremely interested in the man whom Juventus bought in 2009 for a massive €24.5m.

According to the pink paper, Melo's agent has already held talks with Galatasaray officials and a bid from Istanbul could arrive at some point this week.
