Juventus are considering a January bid for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Alex Teixeira, Tuttosport has revealed.
The Bianconeri have reportedly agreed a deal with Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, who is set to arrive on a free transfer at the end of the season, but they are determined not to stop there.
Tuttosport now claims that Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Alex Teixeira could be joining the Old Lady in the January transfer window.
The Miners recently completed the signing of Taison from Metalist Kharkiv and might want to consider selling one of their talented attacking midfielders.
Many believe that the Ukrainian side will allow Willian to make a switch to the English Premier League, but Juventus hope they will instead negotiate the sale of Alex Teixeira.
Teixeira, 22, largely impressed Antonio Conte in the Champions League matches against the Bianconeri and the talented coach sees the Brazilian as an excellent prospect for the future.
Juventus will attempt to sign the youngster on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, but Shakhtar are unlikely to be interested in such an arrangement.
