Juventus eye up Howedes

Germany international Benedikt Howedes of Schalke 04 is an option to reinforce the Juventus defence, claims Bild.

The Bianconeri are still seeking a genuine replacement for Leonardo Bonucci and have been heavily linked with Valencia’s Ezequiel Garay.

According to German newspaper Bild, Juve are also interested in Howedes, but face competition from Liverpool.

The offer on the table for the 29-year-old would be a three-season contract worth €4m per year.

He has 44 senior caps for Germany, scoring two goals.

More importantly, Howedes is a central defender, but can also play at right-back or left-back.
