Juventus are tracking Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick and could hold the upper-hand in a potential transfer.
The 21-year-old Czech international has enjoyed a breakthrough season with Sampdoria, scoring 10 goals in 12 starts for the Blucerchiati and has attracted attention from Inter Milan, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Man City and host of other clubs.
According to Turin based daily Tuttosport, Juve have tried to beat the competition by moving early to secure a deal for the striker. Beppe Marotta reportedly met with Samp about Schick and any potential deal between the two sides would see the player remain in Genoa for next season. The same would also apply to Milan Skriniar who Juve have scouted in the past.
Part of the deal could involve the loan of new Juventus signee Rodrigo Bentancur, who is set to move to Turin this summer having completed his recent transfer to the Bianconeri.
Tuttosport go on to report that Juve could help Sampdoria further by aiding in their purchase of Sebastián Driussi who has attracted the attention of Blucerchiati. Juventus could sign the player and loan him straight out to Samp next season or aid in the signing while retaining a buyout clause for the player.
