The Bianconeri are preparing themselves in the event that Carlos Tevez makes his long-awaited return to Argentina during this transfer window and it seems that they have identified his fellow countryman as their primary target.
La Gazzetta Dello Sport have confirmed that the 27-year-old striker has been on Juventus’ agenda for the past few months and that the Bianconeri’s general director Giuseppe Marotta is keen on providing Massimiliano Allegri with another striking option.
It is also thought that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis would consider selling his star forward if the right offer arrived.
If the Italian champions are to make a move for the Argentine, then it is likely they will have to compete with English Premier League side Arsenal who are also interested in obtaining his signature.
