Juventus are considering making a January move for Bayer Leverkusen youngster Renato Augusto.
Augusto joined Leverkusen from Brazilian side Flamengo last summer and has impressed in the Bundesliga.
Reports say Juventus will face competition from Inter and Liverpool for the Ã‚Â£10million-rated attacking midfielder.
These reports come, despite Juventus President Giovanni Cobolli Gigli stating yesterday, that they will not be making any new signings in January.
“We are second in the League and we have been doing really well lately,” Cobolli Gigli said on Sky Sport Italia.
“Furthermore we have been doing great things in the Champions League.
“We want to fight for the title and European glory, but we will be getting some great players, like David Trezeguet and Gigi Buffon, back from injury in January.
“Therefore we don’t expect to buy or sell any players during the transfer window.
“Obviously Alessio Secco and Jean-Claude Blanc will have a look and make their own decisions.”
