    Juventus ready to make €15m bid for Schalke star Goretzka

    It appears that Axel Witsel isn’t the only talented midfielder Juventus are chasing.
    According to today's edition of Tuttosport (via, the Bianconeri are fascinated by German international Leon Goretzka, who currently plays for Schalke 04.
    The 21-year-old has already been called up twice for the senior team, but also made it to Rio de Janeiro, where he only played 28 minutes with Germany’s silver-medallist football team.
    Here is what Adam Woods had to say about him on FourFourTwo:

    Goretzka has all the attributes of a fine holding midfielder. Standing at 6ft 2in, the youngster is a strong, calming presence in the heart of the midfield. He’s been compared to Real Madrid and Germany star Sami Kherdira thanks to his ability to shield the defence and help break up play. He's not just a defensive head, though, and also links up with his side's more creative players to help build attacks.


    Khedira, eh? The former Stuttgart man has completely revamped his career by joining the Bianconeri last summer.

    Juventus are so interested in Goretzka that they're willing to make a
    15 million bid for him.
