Juventus chase Moutinho, Tielemans

01 December at 10:42
Reports from Italy see Juventus doing everything they can in the January window to offer some alternatives to their injury-plagued midfield.

With the likes of Sami Khedira and Kwadwo Asamoah injured, Hernanes playing poorly, Mario Lemina not fitting in and Simone Padoin and Stefano Sturaro yet to prove they're Juve material, Tuttomercatoweb are reporting that Yuri Tielemans of Anderlecht is in Marotta's sights.

Previously linked to Inter, Tielemans made his Champions League debut when only 16 years old. The Mauves midfielder is only 18, and already boasts 82 appearances with the Constant Vandenstock side.

A number of sources see Juventus adding the kind of spice their midfield needs: Joao Moutinho's contract with Monaco runs out in 2018, but the Portuguese international and regista wants to compete in the Champions League and win titles, something which the cost-cutting Monaco can no longer offer. Seventeen points short of top spot, he could be temted to move.
