Juventus transfer chief Fabio Paratici is reportedly jetting into London in a bid to sign Alexandre Lacazette or Raul Jimenez.

Juve have made bolstering their forward line their top priority this summer, with the Premier League their main focus.

According to La Stampa, via TuttoMercatoWeb, Gunners forward Lacazette is their number one target.

The 29-year-old has emerged as a candidate in the Italian media, with a potential swap deal mooted.

Gonzalo Higuain, Douglas Costa or Cristian Romero are all on the table, should the London club entertain an exchange deal.

The Sun claims that the Gunners are looking for a price of around £30m for Lacazette. With the player currently having two years remaining on his contract.

Juve have Jimenez Plan B

However, Juve have a plan B in mind if the Frenchman stays put, with impressive Wolves man Jimenez also on their radar.

Manchester United were linked with the Mexican after a campaign in which he notched 27 goals in 55 appearances.

The 29-year-old has previously stated that he could reurn to LaLiga. However, he is yet to play in Italy and that prove to be a temptation – especially with Juve Champions League regulars.

Another player on Juventus’ list of top targets is Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, who is also wanted by Tottenham.

The talented youngster is back from a long-term injury but is said to want a move away from the Stadio Olimpico.
