Italian champions Juventus are keeping close tabs on Atletico Madrid defender Jose Maria Gimenez, Tuttosport can reveal.
The Bianconeri did well to rejuvenate their back line by signing Daniele Rugani and Mattia Caldara, but the rebuilding process looks set to continue.
Considering that Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini are in the closing stage of their careers and taking into account injury problems of Benedikt Howedes and Mehdi Benatia, Juventus aim to recruit another talented centre-back.
Tuttosport claims that Atletico Madrid starlet Jose Maria Gimenez is high on their wish list having performed admirably for club and country over the last few years.
The 22-year-old is expected to sign a contract extension until June 2021 with los Colchoneros, but he could still leave the club due to a lack of first team football.
