Juve target N’Koulou

Reports say Juventus have been scouting Marseille defender Nicolas N’Koulou as they plan summer transfers.

The Cameroon international is out of contract at the end of June and Corriere dello Sport writes that the Old Lady are considering making a move.

The newspaper says that Juve sent scouts to watch the 26-year-old in Paris on Saturday during Marseille’s French Cup final defeat to PSG.

However, alternatives in defence include Bayer Leverkusen’s Omar Toprak and Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld.

In midfield, the report says that there is concrete interest in Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic, but Valencia’s Andre Gomes is the priority.

Meanwhile, as talks go on with Real Madrid for Alvaro Morata, the Italian champions could also open negotiations with the Spanish club for Isco.

Morata’s future is key to the moves Juve will make in the market, as if he leaves then the Turin club will target PSG’s Edinson Cavani as a replacement.

Michy Batshuayi of Marseille is the alternative to the former Napoli man, says the report.
