Sampdoria attacking midfielder Dennis Praet is wanted by Juventus. The 23-year-old Belgian international has caught the eye of Juve scouts in recent months and the club are now considering a 15 million euro move for the player.

"Attracting the interest of strong teams is pleasing to me, it shows I am playing well. But right now I am only thinking about Sampdoria. At the moment, I have no plans to leave," Praet told Italian media.

Praet, who spent his early years in Belgium for Anderlecht and Genk, has since made his first-team debut for Belgium and is a regular in Sampdoria's side. A number of impressive performances have caught the eye of Juve.

Juventus will have to pay a small fee to former club Anderlecht as part of a sell-on clause but a deal is expected to be concluded in July for the youngster.

Praet has two years remaining on his deal with Sampdoria and will rebuff a move to England in favour of transferring to Juventus.
