Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose could be playing his football in Turin next season, with Juventus reportedly jumping to the front of the queue for the Englishman.
According to The Mirror, the Italian champions are now in pole position to land the 29-year-old, who did not travel with Spurs to Singapore for the first part of their pre-season.
Mauricio Pochettino appears to want to sell the former Leeds United man, despite him showing signs of getting back to his best last term.
It is thought an offer around the £20 million mark would be good enough for Spurs to sell.
Juve were also linked with Rose’s former teammate Kieran Trippier, before he eventually completed a move to Atletico Madrid.
With Maurizio Sarri now in charge at the Allianz Stadium, it isn’t difficult to understand Juve’s interest.
The former Chelsea boss was able to get a close look at Rose during his one-year stint in England.
Perhaps glitzy Juventus will appeal to £60,000-a-week ace Rose (Spotrac), with the Bianconeri assembling a world-class team.
The Italian league is known for being slightly slower-paced than the Premier League, which might suit the fragile Rose as he approaches the age of 30.
