Juventus reportedly held a meeting with Roma to discuss the possibility of signing defender Kostas Manolas.
Juve are on the lookout for a new centre-back following the shock departure of Leonardo Bonucci, and La Reppublica claims general manager Beppe Marotta met Roma sporting director Monchi at the Regina Baglioni hotel in the capital last Wednesday.
Furthermore, it was there that the Bianconeri learned the Lupi were demanding €40m for the Greece international.
Manolas, 26, has been at Roma since 2014 and has two more years left on his contract.
He also recently rejected a move to Zenit St Petersburg, prompting the Giallorossi to insist neither he nor Radja Nainggolan would be going anywhere.
