Willian & Kumbulla for Juve?

Juventus are reportedly preparing moves for Chelsea forward Willian and Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.

Willian’s contract expires at the end of the season and Corriere dello Sport claims Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici is weighing up a cut-price deal for the Brazilian in January.

Only yesterday, former Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu suggested the 31-year-old would be an “ideal” signing for Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Willian played under Sarri at Chelsea last term, helping the Blues win the Europa League, and can play anywhere across the front line.

Elsewhere,’s Romeo Agresti writes Kumbulla is also on their list of targets.

The 19-year-old would be one for the future, although he has already played nine times for Verona this season.

He has also broken into the Albania set-up, and Paratici is said to have been impressed by the young stopper.

However, the Bianconeri have no shortage of options at centre-back, with big-money buy Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral adding to Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Daniele Rugani over the summer.

They also have Cristian Romero out on loan at Genoa, although Demiral is being linked with an exit this winter.
