Juventus are reportedly preparing a swoop for Udinese and Argentina international midfielder Rodrigo De Paul.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Bianconeri sent one of their scouts to Udinese’s 3-2 win over Genoa, accompanied by De Paul’s agent Augustin Jimenez.
They were evaluating a future offer for the 26-year-old, who is under contract until June 2024.
De Paul had been on the verge of a summer transfer to Leeds United, but Marcelo Bielsa’s Premier League side would not reach the €40m asking price.
It is likely Juventus are laying the groundwork for next season rather than a January move, considering the tight financial situation caused by COVID-19.
