Turin-based daily Tuttosport is reporting that Juventus are keeping close tabs on St Pauli striker Ante Budimir.
The Bianconeri have been in the market for high-quality footballers, but they are also looking towards the future.
And after securing the signature of Rolando Mandragora, one of Italy’s hottest talents, they have now expressed their interest in St Pauli starlet Ante Budimir.
Juventus scouts have been impressed with the footballer’s performances in Italian Serie B, with the 24-year-old currently on loan at Crotone.
Budimir has scored 10 goals in 23 league outings to help the Rossoblu climb to the Serie B summit, and there is a chance he will be staying in Italy beyond the current season.
After enjoying a bright start to his career in native Croatia, the striker has largely struggled since moving to St Pauli, having failed to score a single goal in 19 league appearances for the club.
