Juventus are hoping to tempt Lyon into parting with starlet Houssem Aouar in exchange for Blaise Matuidi and €32m, claim Tuttosport and Calciomercato.it.
The Bianconeri have never disguised their interest in the creative midfielder, who turns 22 later this month.
His contract runs to June 2023, but Olympique Lyonnais confessed they will really struggle to keep hold of him for next season.
Aouar scored nine goals with seven assists in 37 competitive games for Lyon this season.
According to Tuttosport and Calciomercato.it, the key to prising Aouar away from his club could be sending World Cup winner Matuidi to Lyon in exchange.
There would also be €32m in cash to bump up the transfer fee, as Aouar is valued at least at €50m.
