Juventus have turned up the heat in their pursuit of Lyon forward Lisandro Lopez, reports the Corriere dello Sport.
The Argentine is one of a number of strikers who have been linked with a January move to the Italian champions.
Although it is believed that Lyon recently refused the Old Lady’s bid to take him on loan, the scenario may now have changed.
A report this afternoon suggests that the Bianconeri could be very close to making a breakthrough for the South American.
Lopez, 29, joined his current French club in 2009 after spending four years in Portugal with Porto.
