Spanish daily newspaper AS has claimed that Juventus are hot on the trail of Atletico Madrid striker Borja Baston.
The Bianconeri are quite happy with their current attacking options, but they are well aware that Real Madrid have the option to buy back Alvaro Morata, with the latest reports suggesting los Blancos will exercise said clause at the end of the season.
If that happens, Juventus will be forced to recruit a new centre forward and it appears they will again be shopping in Spain.
According to AS, the Bianconeri have set their sights on Atletico Madrid forward Borja Baston, who has impressed during the loan spell with Eibar.
The 23-year-old has netted impressive 16 times in 23 league outings this season and no wonder he has caught the eye of top European clubs.
However, it is believed that Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone wants Baston in his squad for the 2016/2017 season, meaning Juventus will not have an easy job trying to lure him to Turin.
