Juventus have learned the fee they will have to pay if they wish to lure Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to Turin, a report claims.

The Serie A giants are looking for a replacement for Massimiliano Allegri, who announced he will step down as head coach at the end of the season after five years.

The 51-year-old has been in charge of the Turin club since joining from fellow Serie A heavyweights AC Milan in 2014, and won the league title in each of his five seasons in charge.

Juve have been linked with a potential swoop for Reds boss Klopp before, with suggestions that an approach could force Liverpool to spring into action over a new deal.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri claimed on Sunday that Juve have made an official approach for Klopp, but that it was quickly rebuffed.

Now, Turin-based paper Tuttosport claim that the Bianconeri have learned it will cost £32million to trigger his release clause, if he showed an indication of being willing to replace Allegri.

The German coach, who has also insisted he has no “master plan” for his managerial career, is currently under contract at Anfield until 2022.

Klopp can win his first trophy with the club when his side take on Spurs in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1.
