Juventus used their midweek match against Brescia to begin talks with President Massimo Cellino for 19-year-old midfielder Sandro Tonali.
The Bianconeri have been following the Azzurri talent for a few years now and their interest in the youngster is well known.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Tonali’s recent performances have prompted Juve director Fabio Paratici to contact Cellino for initial negotiations.
Juve are aiming to get themselves into a good position to sign the youngster but face opposition from the likes of Manchester United, Inter and Paris Saint-Germain.
Tonali is expected to cost in excess of €25m having played a key role in Brescia’s promotion to Serie A.
