Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport has learned that Juventus are showing interest in Hamburg midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
The 20-year-old has exploded onto the biggest stage this season and has seen his name linked with Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool among other sides.
Hamburg in turn slapped a €20 million price tag on their prized asset, but it appears they face a real battle on their hands in an attempt to hold on to the highly rated footballer.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus have been keeping a close eye on the Turkey international and they could step up their interest at the end of the current campaign.
Calhanoglu has made a total of 27 Bundesliga appearances for Hamburg since arriving from Karlsruher in the summer and scored 9 goals.
Hamburg seriously boosted their survival hopes with weekend’s 2-1 triumph over Bayer Leverkusen, but Mirko Slomka’s side remain 6/4 to suffer relegation to the second division.
