Juventus are keen to join two Premier League sides in their attempts to sign Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka, whose current contract runs out in the summer.

Goretzka – who is also a target for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool – is undecided on whether or not to extend his contract with the German club beyond the end of his current deal.

The 22-year-old is very much aware of the interest from some of Europe’s elite clubs, and that has almost certainly made him hesitate signing a new contract just yet.

Calcio Mercato revealed that there are two Premier League clubs that have swooped to make contact with the players entourage – although did not name the two clubs.

They also revealed that Barcelona have made a move to talk to his representatives.

The Old Lady have yet to make their move, and will only attempt to sign the German if his salary requirements are realistic.
