|Reports say Juventus aim to keep Paul Pogba and sign three world-class players this summer.
Gazzetta dello Sport writes that the Old Lady are targeting a Champions League triumph next season and will act accordingly in the market.
Pogba has been linked with many of Europe’s top clubs but Juve plan to keep hold of him in order to launch their European challenge.
The outlet believes Massimiliano Allegri wants to use a 4-3-1-2 formation and that Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan is his number one choice as trequartista.
The Armenian is a key player for the Bundesliga club, but the report notes that Mario Gotze’s possible return could open the door to his exit.
In midfield the top target is Valencia starlet Andre Gomes, a Portugal international who Juve value at €20m but the Spaniards want €30m for.
Long-time target Edinson Cavani of PSG is the first choice reinforcement in attack, but he’ll be expensive as he demands a €40m transfer fee and €7m plus bonuses per year of wages.
Gazzetta says that there is an alternative option to all three of these players: PSG’s Javier Pastore as trequartista, Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante in midfield and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku up front.
That may not be all for Juve’s activity, with the report noting that Domenico Berardi’s arrival from Sassuolo and a new defender could complete their summer business.
Jeison Murillo of Inter and PSG’s Marquinhos are two of the stoppers who have been linked with the Turin giants.
