Juventus are reportedly ready to lock horns with Arsenal over the signature of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.
The Ghana international has been consistently linked with a summer switch to the Gunners.
However, with the north Londoners struggling to agree a part-exchange deal with the Spanish outfit, the door has been slightly open for other suitors to enter the running.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian champions Juventus have now registered an interest in the Atletico Madrid midfielder, who has a £45m release clause.
The report adds that the 27-year-old midfielder wants to make a switch to Juve, who have recently appointed Andrea Pirlo as their new manager.
Like Arsenal, the Bianconeri are expected to make a proposal which involves one player heading in the opposite direction.
